On this episode of Autographs, Matt chats with the incomparable drag and burlesque badass, Hazel Tart. Hazel talks with Matt about how she got her start in the drag scene, her discovery of burlesque, her love of a variety of nerdy pursuits, as well as what goes into building a performance. They also discuss the great lengths to which Hazel goes in order to craft unique narratives in those performances. Finally, Matt and Hazel dive into Hazel’s hiatus from performing — and why she felt she need to take a step back.
