If you don't think that Hello Dolly has a burlesque quality to it, then we're not enjoying the same show.

"Burlesque--an absurd or comically exaggerated imitation of something, especially in a literary or dramatic work".

Just the eating scene itself is a burlesque show. I mean, really? Virtually every character in Dolly fits within "an exaggerated imitation" of something.
