Theater My Effortless Prescience

This week, in my profile of burlesque/”boylesque” dancer Waxie Moon (aka Marc Kenison: Juilliard graduate, dancer for the prestigious José Limón Company, co-founder of Washington Ensemble Theatre), I wrote:
Waxie introduced something new to burlesque: pathos.
I was talking about a little pathos in her character, her peculiar combination of diva and busted ho.
Little did I know she was about to release this, which kicks pathos-in-burlesque to a whole new plateau.
Now that’s what I didn’t know I was talking about.
Read the rest of the story—which features a leather daddy, Waxie stripping for Cyndi Lauper and Fred Schneider, and Diana Ross acting like a total bitch—here.
