In the meantime, And Beyond Theatre Company has got you covered: The troupes members have been augmenting the DNC celebrations with special performances this year, and today and tomorrow, theyll share their interpretation of what a vaudeville show might have looked like in Denver on the weekend before the 1908 election between William Jennings Bryan (D) and William Taft (R).
Featuring ragtime piano by local treasure Hank Troy, the Give My Regards to Vaudeville show will also include the Suffering Suffragettes singing group, can-can girls, the Ignition barbershop quartet and much more. The hour-long show takes place (appropriately) at the Grant Avenue Community Center, which was built in 1908. The center is at 216 South Grant Street; tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children and seniors. Call 303-641-8796 or visit www.andbeyondtheatre.org.
