Cher returns to the big screen in Burlesque, a film directed by Steven Antin. The Caesars Palace headliner, who won an Academy Award® for her role in Moonstruck, plays Tess, a jaded L.A. club owner who thinks she’s seen it all—until small-town girl Ali (Christina Aguilera) belts out a song onstage. Tess takes Ali under her wing and, with the help of a sharp-witted stage manager (Stanley Tucci) and a gender-bending host (Alan Cumming), The Burlesque Lounge has its new star.
