Super Happy Funtime Burlesque at the Red Room, Boise

mr-charles-deactivated20130618 asked: Do you (or any of your lovely followers) know anything about burlesque shows in Boise, Idaho? My mom said she would take me to one for my 18th but we can't seem to find any!

Try these as starters:

I also found Sin, Dino’s, and The Red Room as possible venues.

Any other suggestions?

“Red Hot Annie began her burlesque career as a solo performer in Jan 2008. Keith Emroll (aka Dick Dijon) began shooting and editing video for Annie to provide content for her personal website. Both of them were performers at heart, with over 20 years of combined theatrical production experience. As Annie’s burlesque career progressed, she and Keith started to talk about producing their own shows with an eye towards bringing a more theatrical style to the scene and to provide more opportunities for the Chicago burlesque community at large to perform and increase its visibility.”

To answe your quetion about “Burlesque”…

I watched it recently because I was curious. I knew it wouldn’t be good but I thought it would be a guilty pleasure at least. Clearly, I was wrong. If you’re interested, I wrote a short post about what I found wrong with it and much of it was very wrong in the way it did not know anything about burlesque. Yet, it still had the ignorance to claim it was “burlesque” and that it respected burlesque. Ugh.

New to Burlesque

Sorry couldn’t find your ask box, but I want to try burlesque and perform at least once. I don’t quite know where to start though. I’m looking up classes, in the Chicago area, but I didn’t know if you had any resources or tips? 

Love your blog

Kisses,

Paige
