I’m a huge fan of musicals, so I’ve seen plenty of recommendations online, but some of the suggestions felt like they were only on the list because they had a vague musical connection. So, this list is my chance to talk about the movies I think honestly come close to Burlesque.
Rob Marshall’s version of the Bob Fosse musical casts Renee Zellweger as Roxy, an aspiring singer, and Catherine Zeta Jones as fading star Velma.
Unfortunately, both are in jail for murder, but that little problem won’t stand in their way.
I love Chicago’s theatricality – like Burlesque, it slips seamlessly from dream sequence to real stage to plain old 1930s Chicago jail. And with every character earning a glittering turn in the spotlight, we’re treated to performances from Queen Latifah, John C. Reilly, Richard Gere, Christine Baranski and more.
I think Baz Luhrmann and Rob Marshall share a talent for putting the stage onscreen, so the courtesan and writer’s love affair has to be next on my list.
This movie’s got plenty of star power, with Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor as the main couple, supported by John Leguizamo and Jim Broadbent, and a soundtrack full of classic and glam rock songs remixed with iconic movie soundtracks.
Moulin Rouge! and Burlesque each attempt their own interpretation of Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend, so which is your favourite? Satine’s hard to beat, but I do like the Kristen Bell version. Let me know in the comments!
I don’t think we can go too wrong with this movie like ‘Burlesque’. A girl from New Jersey heads into the city, and though she’s the opposite of Christina Aguilera’s confident Ali, she finds work at a noisy bar where the waitresses are known for their table top routines.
The cast and track listing aren’t so dazzling, but with a Leann Rimes theme song and West End actor Adam Garcia as a bartender, it doesn’t come off too badly either.
In Whitney Houston’s final movie appearance, she plays a former star and the mother of Jordin Sparks’ ambitious up and coming singer.
Along with her two music-loving sisters, Sparkle takes up the opportunity of a high profile career, but is soon torn between her traditional background and glamorous new life.
Whitney Houston, Jordin Sparks and Ceelo Green all add original songs to the soundtrack, making this another movie that doesn’t let talent go to waste.
From the costumes to the routines, these classic musicals are perfect for Burlesque fans.
Sally Bowles loves her life on a German cabaret stage, and dreams of stardom. The Weimar Republic is becoming increasingly dangerous, though, and her personal life is turbulent.
Winning eight Oscars and starring Liza Minnelli, this movie is a dramatic and musical accomplishment, but it’s also got the kind of musical numbers that you’ll be singing for days.
Marilyn Monroe stars in the movie that brought us the original pink dress and jewels routine, with Diamonds forming part of Lorelei’s showgirl routine. The movie is all about two best friends who aspire to high society courtesy of their admirers’ funds and status.
If you like this one, I think you’ll like the 1925 book by Anita Loos, too.
