NO APPLAUSE, JUST THROW MONEY:
THE SHOW THAT MADE VAUDEVILLE FAMOUS!
Trav S.D., superhero of downtown theater and historian of all things wondrous, presents this original variety revue. Note the amazing language of the press release:
"Based on Trav S.D. ‘s popular book No Applause, Just Throw Money: the Book That Made Vaudeville Famous (Faber & Faber, 2005), No Applause…The Show is an original variety revue with sketches and songs by Trav S.D., a core cast that includes Maggie Cino, Leela Corman, Gyda Arber, Danny Bowes, Michael Criscuolo, Roger Nasser, Mike Rutkoski, Scott Stiffler, Art Wallace, and special guest stars from the cream of New York’s variety scene, including Todd Robbins (Carnival Knowledge), Raven Snook, Goddess Pearlman (Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad), the Maestrocities, the Main Squeeze Pigtail Orchestra, and Mark Mitton.

It's running through October 5th at Theater for the New City. I'm sure it is a blast. It is full of wonderfully talented people, and led by a real expert on the subject and material.
