"A Night at the Gaiety Male Burlesque in New York City"

Federico Santi

69 Pages with dozens of black and white photographs taken with a hand held camera in poor lighting and blurred images; but for those who visited The Gaiety, memories return of how special was this little corner of Times Square. The price of admission after climbing a very long staircase lead you into a small and seedy theater with a stage reaching into the audience. The backdrop to the stage was hung with shimmering mylar curtain that framed the sexy clothed and then naked young men who entertained for the receptive audience. Visit one night at The Gaiety again!
