This week's book discovery

This book was published a few years ago, but it is only recently that we got introduced to it and we thought you would like to hear about it. So 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 book 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 book is a journey preserving just some of the history and memories of those who worked on a variety of those burlesque stages.
