Vermont was awesome!
The ambiance backstage was very friendly as I saw familiar faces. A fun reunion in the heat of August as opposed to the Vermont Burrrrlesque Fest. occurring in January!
We were performing under a circus tent. The public was warm and intrigued, they had only heard about
burlesque but only their parents or grandparents had actually seen it as a child peeping through the back door curtain!
Although my Canadian debit card was not working anywhere, as USA banks had changed their chip reader, I managed to get gas, after stopping at 3 different gas stations. Later after the show I got a lovely letter from one of the Gas Station owners apologising about being unable to help us and it made my night! How sweet!
There are still wonderful humans that take the time to write with a pen and paper a little note full of genuine sentiments. I was touched.
Cory, the producer, was as always a pleasure to be around. The stress of the event did not seem to get to him, and the 4 shows went so well. I am not certain who was most excited to be there, the artists or the public!
A very special thanks to our MC, Miss Lili VonSchtupp and Miss Trouble who were sweethearts to help me and my oversized props and complicated music. The Band was a pure delight and to the T with the music, ah… so much fun!
