Details

Variety emerged from the music-hall tradition after the First World War, providing a family-friendly entertainment that could compete with the new crazes for revue and cinema. This celebration of its period of dominance in British theatres up to the 1950s profiles stars such as Gracie Fields and Max Miller, remembers famous acts, from vents and hoofers to magicians and jugglers, and includes anecdotes about the itinerant life of a touring performer.
