Check out this great article on director Steven Antin and the process of creating Burlesque. As her first role in a major motion picture, Christina found great comfort in director Steven Antin. “I immediately connected to Steven from the beginning,” she says. “There’s a lot to take on with a musical, but he definitely had a vision going in that spoke to me. He eased me into the process.”

Not only does Christina have fond words for her director, she also raves about her cast-mates. “I love no-bull-(expletive) women, and she’s the best of the best,” she says of Cher, who plays Tess, owner of The Burlesque Lounge. “An original trendsetter in her time and a legend in mine. I found her kind and warm. She had helpful advice and stories for days.” Cher and Christina together, So exciting!! Click here to read all about USA Today’s coverage of Burlesque!
