Saw preview so perhaps it will improve. Music good, some talented actors. But, first 20 minutes did not engage me at all. Play was too long. Some cutting should occur, especially early on.

Description

A hilarious play with music by Laurence Carr. It’s 1919, and nine seasoned show folks are stuck in Philadelphia. While their current world is the small time circut of split weeks, they keep their hopes alive for the ‘Big Time.’ The players are a cross-section of the last generation of hoofers, comics and ‘novelty acts’ who kept America entertained while Vaudeville was king.
