Behind the Burly Q DVD Review



Synopsis: 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. 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, even as it experiences a new renaissance.

Review: Burlesque is a fantastic art form that has survived the test of time.  This new documentary preserves and chronicles the birth burlesque and its evolution from the early vaudeville.  Through interviews and tons of video footage we get to see the legacy of this great form of entertainment preserved forever!

The DVD bonus features include: Three Featurettes: The Reunion - Memorabilia & Costumes- Behind the Scenes, Bonus Interviews, Burlesque Timeline, Photo Gallery, Original Theatrical Trailer and Closed Captions. Color & b/w.

Interest Range: Documentary
