Dear Constant Reader,
I believe I neglected to tell you that I had been selected to perform at The New York Burlesque Festival. I am incredibly excited! There’s a lot of competition for a relatively few slots and this year happens to be the 20th anniversary.
I’ll be performing Thursday night at The Bell House (where I’ve performed at previous NYBFs) with Whole Lotta Mina, which you may have seen if you were at the most recent Expo or if you’re one of my Patrons.
This all means I am eligible for a Golden Pastie award! Nominations are open until September 11 and then voting starts. I’ve decided to concentrate my efforts on being nominated for The Producers Dream Award (for the performer who is never late and always sends their music on time) and for The Dorian Gray Award (for the performer who looks younger now than when they started performing) (maybe not younger, but enough people have said I look much the same as when I started this burlesque stuff over a decade and a half ago).
So, I am asking you, Dear Reader, to please nominate me in those two categories. If I am fortunate enough to be a finalist, you will surely know. I have never won a burlesque award and despite the silliness, a Golden Pastie would mean a lot to me.
Thank you in advance,
