I couldn't agree more, Jake. This writing is atrocious, particularly the elementary adjectives. I cringed at "She's the biggest out of all of the dancers [...]" Are you kidding me? You couldn't think of something better than "biggest"? You made Crystal Kiss sound like blob of some sort, when in reality, she's an incredibly shapely and appealing woman to admire. Then there's the "shitty" mint green paint they got rid of. Further, you highlight Ida's "natural boobies"...yet ALL the Don't Blink performers have 100% God-given parts. I'm just going to say it - WAS THIS SERIOUSLY WRITTEN BY A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT?
It's also clear this writer has no idea what burlesque even is. Burlesque by definition is parody, so it is not an anomaly for burlesque to have a fusion of comedy with sexiness. It's what makes burlesque...burlesque...and separates it from what you would see at TD's or Tens - NOT from what you see with other burlesquers in town. They do it, too. And some incredibly well - take Stormy Leigh of Black Cherry Burlesque, for example.
PS - No one goes to a burlesque show to get a "big boner", for heaven's sake.
