Dear Constant Reader,
When removing your shoes on stage, set them down neatly instead of flinging them with wild abandon.
They won’t make a loud clatter when they hit the floor. They won’t take something (or someone) out if you misjudge the trajectory. And if you want put them back on later in the act, they’re right there ready for you.
The lovely photo of this shoe once owned by Dita Von Teese (and my leg) is by Charles Jones and my Patrons have access to the full and uncropped series that he shot. Just saying.
Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
