Before I witnessed a couple of local shows and talked with a few performers, I didn’t realize that the Kansas City Burlesque scene was filled with so much intrigue, mystery and maneuvering.
The latest tremor shaking the scene to its core is a move by Susanna “Lucky Deluxe” Lee that announces a split between the local pinup comedian, whose career is on the rise, and her pals at The Kansas City Society of Burlesque.
On the record both parties are being very cordial and it’s kind of the classic “creative differences” split that so many performers undergo. But on background, it’s clear to me that Lucky Deluxe might have outgrown the KC SOB and their collection of small town part-timers.
Check out the rather gracious press release from Lee:
