Midwest Book Review

One of the major theaters of the vaudeville era, "If You Can Play Scranton: A Theatrical History" discusses the theater which earned prominence as a major platform of vaudeville, big band concerts, comedy, and many other performance art aspects. To this day, Scranton still serves as a major pinnacle of show business in Pennsylvania, serving as a launch pad for careers. "If You Can Play Scranton" is a wise and much recommended read for theatrical study collections.
