BURLESQUE THEN AND NOW. Did you see the Gothamist/New York Times item featuring a 1935 letter extolling the beauty of burlesque?

For a generous helping of stills of more recent burlesque, check out this substantial Flickr set, brought to my attention via Rachel Kramer Bussel's blog Lusty Lady.

And here's a sampler of New York City's hardcore BadAss Burlesque, courtesy of ToxicPop.
