About This Book
The official companion to the upcoming musical motion picture event. In Burlesque, Christina Aguilera plays Ali, a small-town girl who follows her dreams to Los Angeles and finds work at an ailing theater owned by Tess (Cher). On her way toward stage success, Ali is helped by a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and fabulous host (Alan Cumming), finds a friend (Julianne Hough) and a jealous enemy (Kristen Bell), falls for a bartender (Cam Gigandet), and receives an enticing proposal from a charismatic entrepreneur (Eric Dane). Breathtaking choreography, outrageous costumes, and original and classic songs make Burlesque the kind of brash and bold musical fans go mad for. Filled with scenes from the film, exclusive behind-the-scenes photos, costume sketches, set designs, screenplay excerpts, and contributions from the cast and crew, this is a gorgeous, fascinating, and up-close celebration of the over-the-top glamour and gritty struggles found in Burlesque.
