Boston version
 n.— «Burlesque has a rich history in Boston, where several burlesque theaters stood in Scollay Square before the district was demolished to make way for Government Center. Performers during burlesque’s heyday coined the term “the Boston version,” refering to the covered-up version of the strip shows performed when censors were in the audience.» —“Bare facts of burlesque are revealed at weekend event” by Renee Nadeau Boston Herald (Massachusetts) Mar. 23, 2008.
