Review:

'Woods shows how international performers in American vaudeville and British music hall wrought new understandings of celebrity, gender, patriotism and empire. This lively storyilluminates an era in global culture that bears important lessons for our own time.' - Robert W. Snyder, Rutgers-Newark; Author of The Voice of the City: Vaudeville and Popular Culture

Synopsis:

"Transatlantic Stage Stars in Vaudeville and Variety" shows eminent actors performing under stringent conditions in vaudeville. Some of the stars, it will surprise no one to learn, did better than others. It was a strange notion in 1900 that leading lights of the legitimate stage would ever join a bill of 'turns' or short acts, with everything from, and in between, song-and-dance, trained animals, blackface, aerialists, criminals regaling crowds with their exploits, and eating fire. This book chronicles renowned actors showing rough fare in rough times.
