Dear Constant Reader,

Tomorrow is our New Year’s Eve Spectacular. I have to say this has been a very rocky road, but it’s leading to a really fabulous show.  I will tell you all about it afterwards — the on-stage glory and the off-stage agonies. Because I know what you really want to hear about.

We’ve got some really amazing acts for you, including some we only bring out for very special occasions, some old favorites, and at least one that I don’t think you’ll be able to see again for a long time…

I hope I’ll see you in the audience!

A Little Peek into the Rehearsal Process

Dear Constant Reader,

We’re currently rehearsing for our New Year’s Eve Spectacular and I’ve been sporadically documenting things with crummy cellphone photos that I post to FaceBook. Hopefully the photos will become more numerous, somewhat better, and more interesting in the coming weeks.

Here’s a teaser: What could possibly be inside that oyster, guarded by such charming nymphs in tailcoats by Vixens Ahoy?

If you’d like to see more, check out my FB album here.

And if you’d like to see the finished product in action, we have two shows on New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year!

Dear Constant Reader,

I hope you had a wonderful time ringing in the new year. Our plans were up in the air for a long time. We were going to perform at a night club. No, we weren’t. We were going to make an appearance at a party. No, we weren’t.

At last, clear of performance obligations, The Babydolls (at least the ones in town) decided to have dinner at Lizzy’s, one of our post-show haunts near what used to be The Wrathskellar, before going our separate ways to other entertainments.

Myself, I was Scratch’s guest at “The Merry Wives of Windsor”, playing at the Davis Square Theatre, where we shall soon be presenting “Unlucky in Love”. The play was very funny and quite well done. It was so helpful to see the stage in use.

And then we toasted the new year at Saloon, right down the hall. It’s a wonderful space, all dark wood paneling and a fantastic bar. And the Hamilton Daiquiri is excellent. I’ll have to return when there’s not a DJ playing dance music. The place was made for smokey jazz.

Best part of the evening — I wore my heirloom blush mink coat.

What did you do on New Year’s Eve?
