Burlesque Will Be a Play Before It's a Movie!
A week before the long-awaited (by sick gays) Cher/Christina Aguilera film Burlesque opens in November, there'll be a drag spoof version of it at the Laurie Beachman Theater!
Yes, things happen very quickly nowadays, and in fact, the creators have gotten ahold of the film's illustrious screenplay and liberally sprinkled some actual lines from it into their show, while making it about the hopes and dreams of drag queens trying to make it in the big city.
In this version, the big city is Akron, by the way.
Mimi Imfurst stars.
Will you bump and vamp your way to the front row?
