Leslie Zemeckis - Behind the Burly Q
Preserving the legacy of the pioneers of burlesque has long been a passion of author Leslie Zemeckis. Beginning with her critically-acclaimed 2012 documentary combined with her extensive research which she has accumulated on the subject, Zemeckis has delved into the often misunderstood world of burlesque. In Behind the Burly Q: The Story of Burlesque in America ($24.95), she has documented the definitive oral history of burlesque as told by the original stars themselves in this, her first book.
Filmmaker Leslie Zemeckis is a veteran of stage and film. A frequent contributor to Huffington Post and Stork Magazine among other publications, Zemeckis wrote, produced, and directed the critically acclaimed documentary Behind the Burly Q about old-time burlesque. Her recent documentary Bound by Flesh is the story of Siamese twins, Daisy and Violet Hilton, America’s highest paid vaudeville act.
