THE ART OF THE VAUDEVILLIAN [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 10 September 1920
THE ART OF THE VAUDEVILLIAN An Appreciation by E . H . CONWAY -:- -:- In Four Installments No . 3 The legitimate . star , snugly ensconced in the shelter of a Broadway success , is beset by no such complexities as the vaudevillians . With the ; critical wreath bestowed on his brow , he may indulge in a season-long sigh of relief . It is not so with an act playing the far-flung Orpheum time , for . instance . This performer must be kheenly alive to a variety of local reactions , and prepared to shift his values to meet them . Vancouver and New Orleans may be separated by sensibility as well as by miles .

His art cannot but become more fluent and expressive . Were , evidence required of this development one need- but point to its exhition in the field of musical comedy or the legitimate drama when either milieu...
