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 misunderstood and left out of the history books. By telling the intimate and surprising stories from its golden age through the women (and men!) who lived it, BEHIND THE BURLY Q reveals the true story of burlesque, as it experiences a new renaissance.
