Let me entertain you....
21 December 2012 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

My hats off to these women (some, sadly, since the making of the film, have left us).

Growing up in NYC, we've had always had a 'reputation' - and, part of it was of our burlesque theatres.

Thank goodness the makers of this terrific documentary were able to give these women the chance to reminisce, and film their terrific stories.

One thing I came away with from Behind The Burly Q, is how these women WERE 'women's rights' before there was such a thing.

But, it's only after this period of time, that we can look back and say something like that.

These women were NOT the 'strippers' (Ahem!) of today.

These women - who can probably talk bluer than a truck driver - are feminine, but, they're TOUGH.

They don't let ANYONE boss them around.

They had a job, and they did it.

Some of these women are still holding grudges against others, all these years later.

For the most part, these women keep up their femininity - and while age might have slowed their bodies down a bit, their minds' are revving at top speed.

If you're interested in the history of 'adult' entertainment' (and understand the difference between vaudeville & burlesque, and their off-spring - or want to), this is a great way to spend some time.

Pull up a chair, and let these mesmerising women do a few tricks, some old and then some new tricks - they're very versatile.

And if you're real good, they WILL make you feel good, they want your spirit to climb.

So let them entertain you, and you'll have a real good time.
