Like all other art forms, Burlesque doesn't need booing audiences or you, Dan, to help weed out crappy shows from good ones....ticket sales will do that. Audiences will decide what's worth seeing again and again by purchasing tickets to acts that continue to be entertaining and exciting. SInner Saint has had a very long and successful run at Noc Noc for over two years. The Atomic Bombshells have been SELLING OUT large venues like the Triple Door for YEARS. Meaning that fans continue to come back for more time and time again. There are plenty of hacky Burlesque shows in this town that have come and gone before you can even say "Leg Avenue costume", because audiences saw them once and never wanted to again. Your total dismissiveness of troupes that have obviously struck a large and successful chord with a substantial and repeat fan base is just predictable. Polished successful pros=boring, newbie amateurs=progressive.....what a cliche.
