Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!
Sometimes the show does not go on.
Yes, this is a topical tip. We just learned that our venue for The Boston BeauTease Go Bananaz!, the wonderful Deacon Giles Speakeasy Lab, was informed by the city of Salem that their entertainment license didn’t cover “live theatrical” entertainment, that is, us.
They’re working on remedying the license situation, but in the mean time we absolutely can’t perform tomorrow. It’s incredibly disappointing for everyone — us, the venue, our audience. However, the show is not canceled, merely postponed until everything is in compliance. Brigitte has been waiting 6 years to put on this show — we won’t give up now!
So, usually one should do absolutely everything you can to make sure the show goes on (despite illness, weather, technical issues, &c.) but licences, local ordinances, and other legalities are not to be trifled with.
Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
