More than Munchkins: A History of Performing Little People, An Illustrated Lecture with Trav S.D.
Date: Monday, August 22th
Time: 7pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215

For centuries Little People have been a mainstay of popular entertainment. In this illustrated talk, author and performer Trav S.D. traces the historical ups and downs of very short-statured entertainers from medieval times through the era of P.T. Barnum and dime museums, to side shows and circuses, to vaudeville, to movies and television. Along the way, we trace the evolution of the Little Persons image in popular culture, from one of cruel derision in the age of the court jesterto one of glamour, as personified by sex symbol and Emmy-winning actor Peter Dinklageto a virtual return to carny days on reality tv.

Writer and performer Trav S.D. is a is a key figure in the New Vaudeville, Burlesque and Indie Theatre movements. He is best known for his critically acclaimed 2005 book No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous and as the original director and producer of the 2014 revival of the Marx Brothers 1924 show Ill Say She Is.  Read him daily on his blog Travalanche!
