They were temptresses of tease and specialists in seduction - bawdy and beautiful burlesque performers. Expertly twirling their tassels, these sexy stage professionals took cues from their vaudeville and variety show predecessors. Remembering the time when a strip tease was part of a larger theatrical act complete with humour, live music, and skits, Burlesque: Legendary Stars of the Stage captures the spirit of this unique art form through photographs, interviews, and histories. Shimmying and shaking for countless crowds, burlesque performers strove to maintain a high level of artistry and professionalism in the face of change and controversy in the industry. Spurred by the deaths of some of burlesque's greatest names, this book highlights the careers of selected artists and their contributions to the art of burlesque.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Historical Value! 1. Oktober 2004
Von Lee Angel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I learned more about Burlesque from this book then I have working 25 years in the business. As one of the Ladies in Jane's book, I found information about clubs, agents and old friends I worked with. I could not put the book down. Thank you Jane for caring about a forgotten art and its artists.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Lost Art of Burlesque 22. September 2004
Von Amber Mist - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was obviously a labor of love for author, Jane Briggeman. She brings to life a time when showgirls started in the chorus and the outstanding ones went on to become stars of Burlesque. The pictures are wonderful. This would make a perfect present for someone who longs for the "good old days."

Every fan of vintage theatre performances should have this book. It is tasteful, imaginative and informative, bringing back the days when couples went to Burlesque theatres for a wonderful show. These were the days of glamour when beautiful women danced across the stage in fabulous gowns and furs.

I just might be prejudiced because I am one of the Ladies.

I must say the book is written with love for the art and the people of Burlesque.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Book on Burlesque 28. September 2004
Von Amie Amar - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This fabulous book on vintage Burlesque is beautiful. Author Jane Briggeman founded the Golden Age of Burlesque Historical Society. Thus far over 200 performers have been "found". These delightful entertainers - dancers, comics, straight men, chorus line beauties and talking women have contributed invaluable photographs, stories and momentos. There are beautiful photographs on every page intermingled with stories from some of the featured dancers. We learn where these naughty ladies came from and how they go into Burlesque. Professional and casual backstage photographs let us see these glamorous beauties both as they were then and as they are now.

Electra (from the movie "Gypsy") was a real dancer and is one of the dancers featured in the book.

We are all eagerly awaiting Book II which will contain material from the Minsky Collection.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Burlesque Book wins 2005 IPPY Award 26. Mai 2005
Von J.L. Sothern - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I just heard this book, "BURLESQUE: Legendary Stars of the Stage," won the 2005 IPPY Award in the Performing Arts catagory. From what I've read, over 2200 books were submitted by over 1500 Independent Publishers...and this book was judged to be the best in its catagory. That's all I need to know; it tells me this is a good book--perhaps considered a collectible due to all the photos it contains. The book also preserves at least a small piece of burlesque history; written by someone who has gotten to know many of these old-time performers in their later years. It's a book worth owning!
