The 1868—69 American burlesque season also provides a convenient historical moment in relation to which we can view the sweeping changes in American theatrical culture that led up to it. Thompsonian burlesque emerged in the wake of the most profound cultural reorientation in the history of American theater. It both expressed and contributed to these currents of radical change. Thus, the first season of Thompsonian burlesque in America begins to take on meaning in terms of its place in that larger history of American theater and culture.
Every New York theatrical season between 1869 and 1938 included some variant of burlesque that could be traced back to Ixion and The Forty Thieves. From Ixion on, burlesque in America was inextricably tied to the issue of the spectacular female performer, and from then on burlesque implicitly raised troubling questions about how a woman should be "allowed" to act on stage, about how femininity should and could be represented, and about the relationship of women onstage to women in the outside, "real" world.
