Do you think there's been an increase in newer performers stealing acts from more established performers? How do you think this affects the burlesque scene as a whole?

I have to admit I am not sure if they are 'stealing' acts or simply not researching acts? Its rather shocking that even when told some just dont care. I think sometimes the etiquette has been lost especially with performes who are just starting out.

If the 'stealing' continues people will become disillusioned with the scene. Who is going to booke established performers with honed acts when a newbie can do an attempt at it for much less money! That said promoters and bookers should do their research as well to make sure they arent booking the dodgey ones LOL

Ask away...I have little shame and no pride to dent!
