Burlesque stars Christina Aguilera and Cher, and the gays still aren’t satisfied? Clearly, the only thing missing from the new film is dick. That’s why Mimi Imfurst headlines a cast of drag-theater stars to mount Boylesque, a parody of the film before it even comes out. The action is moved from a glamorous nightclub in L.A. to a seedy gay bar in Akron, Ohio, where a small-town boy meets the world’s worst Cher impersonator and doors begin to open. Tearjerker? Maybe.
