Rust Belt Burlesque
The Softer Side of a Heavy Metal Town
By Erin O’Brien and Bob Perkoski
· Foreword by Mike Olszewski
Rust Belt Burlesque traces the history of burlesque in Cleveland from the 1800s to the present, while also telling the story of Bella Sin, a Mexican immigrant who largely drove Northeast Ohio’s burlesque comeback. Over 100 color photos provide a peek into the raucous Ohio Burlesque Festival that packs the Beachland Ballroom every year.
