Lost Tribes of Vaudeville
was my favorite night
out in the theater all
year. It's been nine
months since that
evening, and I'm still
raving to friends about the incredible talent, polish,
and originality of the
program. Absolute fun
from start to finish.
never seen a show like
that anywhere before and
don't expect to again
outside of NYFOS.
