New York City Vaudeville by Anthony Slide

New York City Vaudeville provides a unique pictorial record of America’s preeminent entertainment medium in the late 1800s through the early 1930s. New York’s Palace Theatre
served as the flagship for vaudeville, on which stage every
vaudevillian aspired to perform. New York City Vaudeville
features photographs of some of the greatest names from
the Palace Theatre, including Jack Benny, George Burns
and Gracie Allen, Anna Held, the Marx Brothers, and Eva Tanguay, as well as legendary African American performers such as Bill Robinson, Ethel Waters, and Bert Williams. Through the photographs and the capsule biographies, the reader is transported back to a time when vaudeville was the people’s entertainment, with a new bill of fare each week and an ever-changing number of performers with ever-changing styles of presentation.
