Description

"Vaudeville Times" was published quarterly from 1998 until 2008. Each issue ran twenty to twenty-eight pages and included four to ten profiles with photos of vaudevillians, old and new, plus reviews and other showbiz histories. AVM is reissuing all forty as a ten volume set. AVM principals Frank Cullen & Donald McNeilly, recipients of The Theatre Museum of NYC's 2011 Award for Excellence in the Preservation of Theatre History, also present adventures-and recipes-from the Porridge Sisters. Florrie and Lavinia Portridge are well-known among vaudevillians and actors as "The Porridge Sisters" for the vegetarian cuisine they serve at Portridge Arms, a 'boardinghouse for theatricals' that offers comfort, cleanliness and bohemian camaraderie. The projected series of seven Porridge Sisters Mysteries takes place in Boston between 1908 and 1932. The "Porridge Sisters Cookbook of Hearty Vegan Fare" was published in 2012. All AVM publications are available at vaudeville.org and on Amazon. The American Museum of Vaudeville (aka American Vaudeville Museum and AVM) was established in 1982 as a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the preservation, collection, presentation and publication of all vaudeville materials, records and effects as may advance and preserve the knowledge of vaudeville, its performers and its place in the cultural and social history of the United States. AVM received its tax exempt 501 (c) (3) designation in 1984.show more
