Vaudeville Old & New
The most comprehensive chronicle yet published about vaudeville, its history, its performers, the industry and the social and economic forces of the era, is available in two hardbound library volumes comprising 1300 pages in an A-Z format with 500 photos, an index and bibliography. A survey of vaudeville precedes the 1500 entries including more than 1000 biographies of old & new performers from 1850 to 2000, and a glossary of hundreds of terms.
Library Journal, 2007: Carolyn Mulac, Division Chief, General Information Services, the Chicago Public Library: “Bottom Line: Whether it’s used as a starting point for research or a fascinating glimpse into our theatrical history, this resource deserves top billing. Highly recommended for large reference as well as performing arts and popular culture collections.”
