The term “the show must go on” is never more poignant than when you have a performance scheduled and you are lying on the floor puking up last night’s take-out.

We have all felt “under the weather” one time or another when we had to seriously rally for a show, a competition, or maybe just life.

Three of the four poor ladies of Cabaret and Cocktails have recently succumbed to the stomach flu while preparing for their first live show since the pandemic. In this episode, we medicate and meditate on the ways we stay performance-ready when we feel like dying a slow death by the toilet.

How do you rally? And when do you call it quits? Find out on Burlesque Moms!
