Fantastic acts this year. My kids loved the entire show. My son especially loved the jazz band and the mathemagician. We even bought his book and DVD! So much fun for my entire family.

Description

The most anticipated family event held annually at the grand theatre, the show is a “hurricane of fun and frolic” paying tribute to the Alex’s vaudeville roots. The event is an eclectic mix of the sort of variety acts that made vaudeville so beloved by a generation of fans.

The Night Blooming Jazzmen will play nostalgic music from the vaudeville era.

Arthur Benjamin, the “Mathemagician.” Does it add up?

The Amazing Artistry of Dan Birch — Fascinating Feathered Fantasy!

America’s Sharpest Specialty Artist, Larry Cisewski: Guinness World Champion Knife Thrower.

The Chipper Lowell Experience, 2-time Award Winner: Comedy Magician of the Year.

As always, the Alex’s card girl will referee the acts.

True to the vaudeville genre, the evening concludes on the big screen with Porky Pig in Curtain Razor (1949) followed by Buster Keaton’s 1922 comedy classic Cops plus the Technicolor short _Calling All Girls _(1942).

From the late 1800’s through the early 20th Century, vaudeville was the common people’s theatrical experience. Across America and around the world, the wildly popular genre featured variety acts of countless descriptions and later included film programs. Alex Film Society’s annual recreation of the nostalgic genre is the only vaudeville show produced regularly in Los Angeles.
