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. And yet the legacy of burlesque is often vilified and misunderstood, and left out of the history books. As it experiences a new renaissance, the true story of burlesque is told through the intimate, and surprising stories of those women (and men) who lived it.
