R! I say, I say, I say (Music Hall Closing) (58* d) RE: I say, I say, I say 09 Jan 01

Vaudeville, as I understand it, was dying by the 1940s, although it limped along for a few more decades. Before it finally died, it was little more than a bump-and-grind strip burlesque show. Films, radio, and television all played a part in its demise. Changing tastes and a more sophisticated type of humor are really what did it in. Occasionally an olde tyme vaudeville show will have a brief run in a theatre as a period piece. Sad, really. I always wanted to be a vaudeville performer (that's me - always a day late and a dollar short). At least I have my London Music Hall video tape. . .
