Award winning lighting designers and 8-time Tony Award winners Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer, were set by producer Donald De Line and director Steven Antin to create the theatrical lighting designs for all the musical numbers in the feature film BURLESQUE (Screen Gems) starring Cher, Christina Aguilera, Eric Dane, Cam Gigandet, Julianne Hough, Peter Gallagher, Alan Cumming, Kristen Bell and Stanley Tucci, which recently wrapped filming at Sony Studios. A dramatic musical, the film focuses on a young hopeful singer (played by Aguilera) who is befriended by the more seasoned nightclub proprietor and headliner (Cher) who owns the glamorous and once illustrious Burlesque Lounge where all of the films' musical numbers take place.
Eisenhauer and Fisher, a veteran duo with unmatched theatrical credentials, have also worked their stage magic on such films as CHICAGO and DREAMGIRLS. They utilized the most sophisticated state of the art technology available to light the sequences in this film recreating the once-great Burlesque Lounge, a nightclub where Cher and Aguilera perform the film's major production numbers. Through their innovative lighting techniques the club is slowly transformed from an ailing out-of-favor club to its former visually stunning and glamorous heyday.
"When it comes to theatrical lighting design Jules Fisher and Peggy Eisenhauer are the gold standard," commented producer Donald De Line. "Their talent and creativity have brought a dazzling new dimension to Burlesque, and we are thrilled to have them on this project."
