At the turn of the century, Chautauqua meant the summer tent shows in the town of Chautauqua, New York. But for the past decade it has stood for the month-long summer tour of a band of vaudevillians, led by The Flying Karamazov Brothers, which travels to small towns in the American Northwest and over to Canada.A few summers ago, Rebecca Chace joined the Chautauqua as a trapeze artist, along with the Karamazovs; Artis the Spoonman; Magical Mystical Michael; The Girls Who Wear Glasses; folksinger Faith Petric; Toes Tiranoff; and many others, including the band and the children of various performers, who put together their own act. This is her story of that summer, and of her romance with Dmitri Karamazov.
