A Little Burlesque to Brighten Your Day


Now, I don't make a habit of watching the CW's teen dramas. But I saw an episode of O.C. creator Josh Schwartz's Gossip Girl last night, and among the heavy breathing, suggestive glances, and emotive eyes, I enjoyed the subplot about teenage Chuck trying to get his dad to invest in a burlesque club.

Maybe Gossip Girl is paying a little more attention to detail than I thought? Or at the very least, is this a suggestion that the Upper East Side show could become another Law and Order-type job resource for NYC actors?
