The Hollywoodland Burlesques

Welcome to Los Angeles where Louella Parsons, the Gossip Queen of Hollywood serves up the American dream for breakfast. Sure, she might have 20 million worldwide listeners tuning in for the daily dish on film stars and the Hollywood elite but rumour has it the glitz and glamour is wearing thin and Lou is having a rough time covering up the seedier underbelly of the movie studios. Sex, murder, suicide, secrets- why go to the pictures when they’re playing out in real life? Welcome to the City of Scandal where gossip is a commodity, where publicity is power and movie starlets are products not people. Welcome to Hollywoodland where everyone pays the price of fame.  Send in the Girls Burlesque bring the real life story of Hedda Hopper, Peg Entwistle, Jean Harlow, Paul Bern and Louella Parsons, the Queen of Hollywood Gossip.

“I’m going to decide on what the truth is and then get her to agree with me. 

Oldest trick in the book."
