Part two of a series, wherein the author attempts to answer the question, "Can I produce a NYC burlesque show without losing my shirt?"
Basically, as good as it might make you feel, it's not time to vent about all the reasons you hate your job and the people you worked with as we learned from this "I Quit" email posted on Gawker last night.
It wasn't long after I became friends with burlesque star and producer Calamity Chang through freelance work that I came up with the idea for Beylesque, a Beyoncé burlesque show to take place on or around the pop diva's 33rd birthday. "It could be huge!" I said. "It's underground meets mainstream pop. You could serve birthday cupcakes and have a dance-off/twerkout during intermission."
Mike: So, Logan, every Friday we sort of scratch our heads and think, "What are we going to talk about for our Friday chat this week? We have chatted all the chats! There are no more chats!" Today we are going to do a grab bag. We each get three questions of whatever nature we want and will take turns asking them. Okay, I'll start.
I watched the trailer for Bey and Jay’s "On the Run" Tour the night it came out, but, like every stadium concert, I figured it would be too expensive and didn’t even think about buying tickets. I tend to save my money for trips (or for nothing, really) and have big issues with seeing a bunch of cash disappear on one night. Enter a mysterious friend of a friend who worked there and could get us tickets. "There?" you ask. At MetLife Stadium, for Beyoncé, or maybe for a vendor? Good question! I didn't ask because I was too excited.
