Feb 25, 2021 — Trav S.D. has written for the Times, the Village Voice, and numerous show business publications. He has been on the vanguard of New York’s vaudeville and burlesque scenes since 1995 when he launched his company Mountebanks, which has presented hundreds of top variety acts. He has directed his own plays, revues, and solo pieces in New York since 1989. In 2014 he produced and directed the smash-hit I’ll Say She Is, the first-ever revival of the Marx Brothers madcap hit. His book No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous (2005) is considered essential reading on the subject.
His blog Travalanche (https://travsd.wordpress.com/) contains hundreds of bios of stars. Tonight we will be talking about Vaudeville and his new book about Little People performers.
He will be joined by Vaudevisuals Press publisher Jim R. Moore, a professional photographer documenting the variety arts. He also has 30 years experience performing as a mime.
Trav will discuss his new book, Rose’s Royal Midgets and Other Little People of Vaudeville (Vaudevisuals Press) https://www.amazon.com/dp/0578762528/ref=rdr_ext_tmb
