Burlesque with Christina Aguilera to Stream for Free in May

More musicals are coming this month to the Tubi TV library: The musical film "Burlesque" is set to take the stage once again as it streams for free on Tubi TV in the United States and Canada during the month of May.

Directed by Steve Antin, the 2010 film features Christina Aguilera, Cher, Stanley Tucci, and Kristen Bell in an all-star cast.

It tells the story of Ali, a small-town girl with big dreams, who moves to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Along the way, she discovers the world of burlesque and finds herself drawn to its glitz, glamour, and seductive energy.



Thanks to Tubi TV, fans of the film will be able to stream it for free throughout the entire month of May. Tubi TV is the world's largest ad-supported streaming service, offering a vast collection of movies and TV shows for viewers to enjoy without the need for a subscription.

The film can now be streamed online and through the Tubi TV app on supported devices.

Burlesque was a passion project for writer and director Steve Antin, who drew inspiration from his love of classic Hollywood musicals. Antin spent years developing the film, which he envisioned as a modern-day take on the genre. He also had a clear vision for the film's aesthetic, which combined vintage glamour with contemporary flair.

The film's production design and costume design teams worked tirelessly to bring Antin's vision to life, creating a stunning visual feast that transports viewers to the dazzling world of burlesque. 

In her review for The Guardian, Catherine Shoard said: "What do Cher and Christina Aguilera share, other than top billing in this double diva musical? Foghorn vocals, for a start: a large part of Burlesque sounds like whales stuck in traffic. Immobile faces, also: Cher's has been sanded into death mask perfection, while Aguilera's seems simply glazed with vacuity, frozen in a semi-pout, half-human, half-dolly, unshakably impassive beneath a permanently sunlit bouffant."
