Interview with Bella Blue, Lucky Pierre’s Burlesque Producer – 21st Century Burlesque Magazine

So impressed by this performer and producer. She speaks beautifully about community, artistic expression, performance freedom and corporate invisibility and responsibility in the interview linked below. This brouhaha happened because one of her Blue Book performers reported being fired by a club on Bourbon Street for her weight, which flies in the face of the acceptance of the diversity of women’s bodies that is common in burlesque. Bella Blue was her producer and speaks very carefully and forcefully in the interview about the situation and about the difference in the stories being told by the performer and the club.
Burlesque is an important and historic art form in our city and the renaissance that has happened in the last 15 years is because of dedicated performers/teachers like Bella Blue. Those born as women and those who perform as women are all represented in the clubs that showcase burlesque and drag and together have built a vibrant and supportive community. Very proud of these artists who represent our city so very well.
