The Story of Burlesque in America.

Burlesque was one of America's most popular forms of live entertainment in the first half of the 20th century. Gaudy, bawdy, and spectacular, the shows entertained thousands of paying customers every night of the week. Yet the legacy of burlesque is often vilified and misunderstood, left out of the history books. This is a fascinating history of the most popular entertainment medium of its day and will highlight a time in our country that most people don't know or have forgotten. A picture of what it was really like to live in that era... you’ll get dropped into the world of a burlesque performer- be it a stripper or a straight man- and you really understand their lives.
