A Burlesque Time

It seems that Burlesque stars are "in."  So much so, there's a Burlesque movie starring Kristen Bell, Christina Aguilera, and Cher star in "Burlesque," a musical about a small-town girl who discovers a burlesque club in LA, set to premiere in November - which actually looks really good!

But, in the meantime, Chicagoans can enjoy the Burlesque women in "A Burlesque Time" coming to the Music Box Theater  this weekend, Aug. 20-21. 

All of the performers have won titles at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Pageant in Vegas.  Its sure to be hot!

For those of you who don't know, Burlesque is a humorous theatrical entertainment involving parody and exaggeration. In 20th century America, the form became associated with a variety show in which striptease is the chief attraction. You can expect live music, beautiful women, elaborate costumes, amazingly choregraphed dance routines and a bit of old Hollywood glamour.
