Publisher's Summary

Join the journey - discover burlesque when it was part of a large theatrical world filled with dance, comedy, and live music. Burlesque: A Living History captures the spirit of this unique art form through hundreds of photographs and stories from many who were a part of America's most colorful past. This audiobook highlights the careers and contributions of selected artists, many of whom were the nuts and bolts of burlesque. It also acknowledges just some of the young performers of today who are diligently working to remember the days of old. When burlesque theatres and clubs went dark, a whole world went dark with them. This audiobook is a journey preserving just some of the history and memories of those who worked on a variety of those burlesque stages.
