Entertainment is a very broad term. Before we can appropriately analyze this we have to be more specific of what exactly we are talking about. When I discuss entertainment in Tucson, I am not referring to sports, I am not referring to national tours, I am not referring to seminars or festivals, I am not referring to films or movie theaters, and I am not referring to contests. So what am I referring to?
We are talking specifically about the local entertainment and local talent right here in Tucson, AZ. We are talking about local musicians, local singers, local actors, local dancers, local performers, and local entertainment. Over the last five years there has been a surge of local talent in Tucson and it continues to grow every year. Tucson has become a hub for Burlesque performance. One can easily throw a rock and hit three people who perform or have performed burlesque at a local bar or other venue in Tucson. And that is the problem. There are so many performers but not enough shows or venues for all of them to perform.
