I have always loved the glamour and pizazz of musicals. Chicago is my favourite musical of all time. I have seen the stage production three times and own the movie version on dvd (which I have seen countless times). Moulin Rouge is also a favourite and has since intregued my interested in burlesque theatre. Of course we all know of Dita Von Tease, who is undeniably one of the worlds best Burlesque performers. love Dita Von Tease (yes, I am even friends with her on Facebook), she is simply gorgeous and her performances are fantastic. Sexy but not sleazy, burlesque is ALL about the tease and the performance. Upon hearing there was a burlesque movie coming out with Christina Aguilera and Cher in it, I was so excited and can’t wait to see it.
