Review quote

"Before radio and television transformed America, there was another medium of mass communication that broadcast live from coast to coast: Circuit Chautauqua. Canning tunes in on the remarkable variety of cultural performances that originated under the big tent of this nationally uplifting circus." - JOSEPH ROACH, author, Cities of the Dead: Circum-Atlantic Performance"
