Swaggering tennis clowns, loquacious cowboys, helium-high burlesque -- they're all part of the outrageous fun of The Big Time, 1812 Productions' new high-energy holiday vaudeville show that brings the steamer trunk circuit into the 21st century. From a bus stop in 1950s America where the foley has a mind of its own, to a pantomimed prom in the 1920s, to Buster Keaton-style mayhem at a modern-day Italian bakery, this hilarious, fast-paced show pay loving homage a variety of different comedic forms, with nods to classic acts like Gallagher & Shean, Burns & Allen, the Smothers Brothers and more. It all combines into one fun theatrical show that recreates the magic and spirit of the golden age of vaudeville. Learn More
