The District crowd was delighted to see storytelling, burlesque, magic and comedy from the likes of local favorites such as Jason Adams, Jamahl Keyes, Minnie Ryder and Lola Lavacious. Musical support was provided by James Benn while Matt Anderson, Kate Duffy and Jon Lindley provided narration and comic background.
Of particular historical interest was the performance of James Solomon Benn as Bert Williams. Williams performed in black face and played in Indy at the English Opera House in 1914 touring with the Ziegfeld Follies. He did vaudeville, recording, and was the first Black man to perform on Broadway and in a feature film.
