Well I mean, it's Howl-o-Scream, it's a completely different set of shows. I think you should sit through them once just to know in person what they're like. And with one show being completely new we're gonna need more opinions on it. (Rather than bandwagon "I love" or "I hate it")
idk I think the HoS are better than the regular season ones anyways, and are a lot easier to suffer through.
I don't think you could call it exotic either, there are no poles. It's really not much different from the other show's dancing outside of their outfits. However, I'm not a dancer so how much I can tell is probably very limited.
Most of the sexual nature of the show is from the not dancing parts tbh.
I think it is fair to say that experiencing each show once, regardless of the time of year, is a way to develop a better opinion of each show. Calling the performers strippers, exotic dancers, or whatever really shows you have not seen the show.
As Applesauce has said, I feel like the Howl-o-Scream shows are much better in contrast to the Spring and Summer shows.
Actually Nicole, why don't you enjoy shows again? I feel like I missed that answer a while back.
