Bringing Burlesque Back

Breakout Entertainment's "L'Originale Burlesque" Takes Center Stage

HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - Breakout Worldwide Entertainment (www.breakoutent.com), already establishing itself as an arresting and stylish new production company in a seemingly narrow scope of obvious and stale alternatives, have done it again! What CEO Sherri Strain and a team of highly talented and devoted creatives have smartly concocted is a new bent on an old tradition that is making a major resurgence BIGTIME -- and for big reasons.

With sights seriously set on a series, the pilot for "L'Originale Burlesque" is in the works and is fixed on bringing back the glitz and glamour of the 1940s burlesque world, both celebrating and ritualizing the beauty and grace of the female form. Boasting elaborate, ostentatious costumes, intricate and period-specific dance techniques, as well as the art of the striptease itself, Breakout's provocative new series promises to entice and indulge.

Director Shawn Foster (The Sun and Sugarcult music videos) is at the helm of this extraordinary little jewel starring the lovely and fiercely exotic Chicago burlesque queen Michelle L'Amour, who has been recently featured on "America's Got Talent." L'Amour has also been seen on Showtime's "Sexual Healing," as well as being featured in Women's Health, NY Post and Time out Chicago.

"L'Originale Burlesque" is being penned by wordsmith Andrew Shafer, with music and lyrics by Sherri Strain and Edward Kramer. Breakout Entertainment will be auditioning dancers by request only. Reels must be accepted no later than Friday, July 20 at 1438 N Gower St, Box 70, Hollywood CA 90028. Attn: Christina Rosenberg.

A classic sensual tradition set against the backdrop of the modern age. Some pastimes are simply too good not to rediscover -- and in this case, reinvent... Making "L'Originale Burlesque" a true original!
