Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!

Ghosting is unprofessional.

For those of you unfamiliar, that’s Dita Von Teese* as Vivienne, the spirit that haunts Christine McConnell’s mirror on The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell.

But I’m not talking about that kind of ghost! I mean the kind where you ignore communication from someone and hope they’ll get the hint and quit bugging you. Whether you are a producer or a performer, it’s just rude to leave someone hanging, even if you’re not interested in what they’re offering.

A simple and polite “No, thank you.” should suffice. You can politely explain why you’re saying no, like the show is fully cast already or the price offered isn’t your usual rate. Just be polite and professional. If you want to work with this person in the future, you should say so. If you don’t, just sign off.

*I wouldn’t want to imply that Dita Von Teese would ever be so unprofessional, but I couldn’t resist the combination of burlesque and ghost.

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