The muscular men of the Chippendales captured the hearts, minds, and dollars of the 1980s in their iconic cuffs and collars. As women’s liberation collided with new ideas of modern masculinity, this unique moment in history catapulted the Los Angeles dance troupe to untold riches and global fame. But as the crowds out front sky-rocketed from hundreds to thousands, the men behind the phenomenon plunged into greed, paranoia, and ultimately murder. Discover the audacious true crime plot behind the scenes, as the beefcakes and businessmen who made male strippers a household name fell foul of the Curse of the Chippendales.
