Summary expansion
The author examines burlesque not only as popular entertainment but also as a complex cultural phenomenon. He locates burlesque within the context of both the social transformation of American theater since the 1840s and its patterns of gender representation, concluding that burlesque is an example of the potential transgressiveness of popular entertainment forms as well as the strategies by which they have been contained and defused.
