Theater Thursday

It's Theater Thursday! This week is dedicated to the upcoming holiday... Valentine's Day! This week's featured holiday movie is, Striptease.
Let me preface this post by saying that I think Demi Moore is great and that I wish her the best in her recovery. 

Striptease follows Demi Moore as Erin Grant, once was an FBI secretary but who is now an exotic dancer. Erin is a single mother who lost custody of her daughter. Wanting to appeal the verdict and regain custody of her little girl, she gets a job to make the money she'll need. One night at the "dance club" she sees a very famous face in the crowd, congressman David Dilbeck (Burt Reynolds). 

The Congressman instantly becomes smitten with Erin at the club. He later invites her to privately dance for him and wants her to become his wife, against his staff's wishes. Along the way, to all of this someone at the club also recognized him and wants Erin to help blackmail the congressman. Erin suspects more is going on than meets the eye. 

There's also a series of murders going on in Miami and Erin suspects the congressman could be involved. Not only is she trying to get her daughter back from the deadbeat exhusband, she's also trying to pin the congressman to the wall for crime.
