In Steven Antin's original musical, Christina Aguilera plays 'Ali', a small-town girl who moves to L.A. to pursue her dreams of fame and fortune. Once there she discovers the ailing Burlesque Lounge, owned by 'Tess' (Cher), and becomes a waitress there until she convinces the retired dancer to give her a chance on stage. During a performance when the sound is maliciously cut, Ali breaks into song and proves what a star she is, soon becoming the venue's headline act.
