KEEP A SONG IN YOUR SOUL: THE BLACK ROOTS OF VAUDEVILLE

DETAILS:

11/3–6 Black, not blackface, vaudeville is the basis of the Old Town School of Folk Music’s first-ever theatrical production, created and performed by the Chicago ragtime pianist and composer and MacArthur-certified genius Reginald R Robinson; the hoofer Reggio McLaughlin, who got his start tapping at local el stops; and the Grammy-winning string band Carolina Chocolate Drops. $41–$45. Old Town School of Folk Music, 4544 N Lincoln. oldtownschool.org.
