Rosie and Lloyd with Moon

This is a scene from The Vaudevillian at the Southern Theater here in Minneapolis. I wrote the play in collaboration of Kevin Kling back in 2010 to celebrate the Southern’s 100-year anniversary.

The show was based on the original vaudeville show that played the night that the Southern Theater opened its doors in 1910. When I looked at the original line-up the only woman on the bill was named Rose. The play was about the spirits of these original cast members returning to the stage 100-years later.
