In Stephen Lee Rich’s performance, you'll hear music from the heyday to the declining years of Vaudeville (roughly from the Prohibition Era through WWII), mixed with explanations of what Vaudeville was, how it worked, women's role in it, and its lasting cultural impact. He spices it up even more with anecdotes about the stars of the era who went on into films, radio, and television. It's all rounded out with comedic storytelling and a bit of yodeling--because every good Vaudeville act needed a gimmick!
