Letter 21  Geishas, Burlesque Shows, Kindles for Christmas, and Another Erogenous Evening with Mr. B

I started this letter days ago – before I quickly wrote and posted Letter 20 – writing a little bit here and there in between my busy schedule

Dear Henry Miller,

I’ve been at the loft the past few days, rehearsing my Geisha number for the big New Year’s Eve show coming up this Saturday.  It’s a very complex, intricate number.  The rehearsals have been long and tiring, but hopefully worth the effort.   This is one of my signature numbers, and one of my favorite burlesque numbers to perform.  I’ve been doing it for over five years, each time, revising and improving upon it.  I have invested over $1,000.00 in costuming over the years – that doesn’t include all the fans and parasols, which need to be replaced frequently, due to hours of use during rehearsals.  I’m grateful for my visits to NYC’s Chinatown, where I can purchase them cheaper in a variety of colors.

Letter 20 – Quick Letter: Getting Ready for Naughty New Year’s Eve Burlesque Show

“Life is 440 horsepower in a 2-cylinder engine.” —Henry Miller

Dear Henry Miller,

I’m sorry this is such a quick letter.   I have been so busy with getting ready for my burlesque show for tomorrow night.   Last year, we had over 500 people attending our Dr. Farrago’s Burlesque Theater Naughty New Year’s Eve Show at TS Bar and Grill in the Minneapolis, suburbs.   This is our second year doing a NYE show at this venue.  We have a large assortment of entertainment this year – burlesque, boylesque, magic, tap dancing, belly dancing, singing, music, variety acts and so much more!  The talent I have booked is amazing!  I have been dealing with the organization of this show, rehearsing my own burlesque and magic numbers, and doing other miscellaneous show stuff all week – business related emails, phone calls, meetings, and all of the necessary obligations which go with producing a high quality burlesque show with an extremely large cast.
