Roller derby burlesque?[edit]

Recently stumbled upon this article doing research for a class when I found the statement "The revival of roller derby also features elements of burlesque." As I am currently doing ethnographic research on Roller Derby, and everything I have seen, and the people I have interviewed on roller derby would sugest otherwise. The reference is an opinion piece which further sugests that this may be misleading. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.137.36.43 (talk) 23:41, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply. A reference is given for the assertion. Do you have a reference that disputes it? -- Ssilvers (talk) 13:20, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

American burlesque poster
The poster for an American burlesque production, Bend Her, dating from circa 1900; this burlesque was a take on Lew Wallace's novel Ben-Hur, which had recently been adapted to stage by William Young.

Burlesque productions such as this were variety shows involving a blend of satire, performance art, music hall and adult entertainment such as stripteases. As with Victorian burlesque, the stories were often parodies of popular contemporary works. These shows, mostly featuring female performers, could be put on in cabarets, clubs, music halls, and theatres.Poster: Courier Company; restoration: Adam Cuerden
