There is a place where the dreams of Broadway hopefuls go to die. It is a junkyard of the nostalgic, an outpost of simpler times and happier days. It has collected the lost hopes and bitter regrets of New York for over a century. To search for Vaudeville, is to search for a time and place that only exists in the memory of the old.
Why then brave the dark roads that lead to Vaudeville? The magic of the stage, and the power of words to move hearts and expand minds. There is wonder there and danger as well. Many seekers have fallen prey to Vaudeville’s overpowering ennui and spent the rest of their days wishing for a past they never experienced or reliving their greatest regrets over and over again.
