Backstage at the Burlesque

Via Flickr:
It was billed as a "burlesque" show, a genre of entertainment popular from the 1930's through the 1950's. I was tempted to try to cover the backstage preparations with my Crown Graphic and 4x5 B&W. I took the easy was out and used my Mamiya C330 and a potato-masher flash on the side. Close enough to the era to feel real.
