The 2010 film, directed by Steve Antin, revolves around a small-town girl named Ali Rose, played by Christina Aguilera who moves to Los Angeles and stumbles upon a struggling burlesque lounge owned by Tess, played by Cher.
The stage version has also been penned by Antin, and will feature tracks from the film by Aguilera, Sia and Diane Warren, including “Welcome to Burlesque”, “Express” and “Bound to You”.
It’s also been confirmed that additional tracks by Jess Folley and Todrick Hall will feature in the live stage adaption.
Aguilera, who is also executive producer, said: “Burlesque was my first feature film — and creating the role of Ali along with co-writing the music was a part of my career that I will always cherish.
“I am so happy to be reunited with Steven, this time behind-the-scenes as an executive producer and contributing songwriter for our new stage version. Recreating Burlesque as a live theatre experience is something I always hoped would happen, and here we are!”
The film marked Aguilera’s first leading role and Cher’s first musical performance on screen.
The cast included Alan Cumming, Stanley Tucci and Kristen Bell and it received Golden Globe and Grammy nominations.
