Filmmaker Leslie Zemeckis discusses her documentary “Behind the Burly Q,” a comprehensive look at burlesque as told by the women performers themselves. April March, one of the dancers featured in the film, also joins us. The documentary focuses on all the performers of the Burlesque era--including male comedians, novelty acts, and musicians--not just strippers. “Behind the Burly Q” opens on April 23 at the Quad Cinema.
