9780786464241: Tony Pastor, Father of Vaudeville

Apprenticed at 14 to life in the circus, Tony Pastor seemed destined for a career in show business. Indeed, true to his desire and his rigorous training, Pastor spent his life within the theater milieu. He made significant contributions to both variety and vaudeville as a songwriter, performer and theater owner. With a head for business, a knack for discovering new talent, and a sharp understanding of popular taste, Pastor initiated new business practices in theater and gave audiences what they sought in entertainment. This book offers a moving and thorough examination of Pastor's rise and gradual decline during the growth and development of the New York stage. Through the story of his life and career, the reader discovers Pastor's unique contributions to popular American theater and the performing arts professions.
