It should come as no surprise that Chicago has a longstanding history with burlesque. At the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, a burlesque performer known as Little Egypt (her real name was Fareeda Mahzar) performed and immediately became a sensation – and yes, that notoriety hit both sides of the acceptability spectrum. Not everyone was a fan of the show.
Chicago hosted the World’s Fair again in 1933. The Century of Progress event featured dancer Sally Rand whose “indecent” dancing had her arrested numerous times. Although times have changed, Chicago’s appreciation for the art of burlesque has not waned.
