Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! A few commercial plugs before we get to your tip…

1. This coming Thursday there’s a fund raiser for The Thalia. It’s going to be great time with music, an auction, and a dessert bar. Get your ticket here. If you can make it, please consider donating to the Kickstarter campaign. Please support The Thalia — we desperately need more performance venues in the Boston area!

2. Applications to The Great Burlesque Exposition of 2017 (#BurlExpo) open August 1st! For the first week, they’re completely free!

3. The Boston BeauTease are taking over The Teaseday Club! If you’ve missed seeing us (and we’ve missed performing for you), come to The Davis Square Theatre on August 2! Tickets available here.

4. I’m teaching THREE costuming workshops in August! Learn to make pasties, a shimmy belt, or a g-string. Come in with nothing, leave with a beautiful costume piece that you made yourself! I’ll probably show some burlesque movies while we stitch. Register here.

And now for your tip…

Unplug.

I know many of us are always hustling — looking for gigs, promoting, communicating with clients, &c. — and our computer and mobile devices are a lifeline. But they are also an anchor. Take some time to get away from that tether. I like to take a walk every day sans phone and let my mind wander. It helps so much with relaxation and creativity.

M2Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
