P.J. Sullivan Helen Keller in Vaudeville? I don't think so.


message 2: by Julie (new)

Julie Inform yourself rather than make the assumption she was not. Read any biography of Helen Keller and you will learn that she did Orpheum vaudeville shows with Anne Sullivan Macy beginning in 1919 and ending in 1924. Her books were not selling well,she was not making enough on the lecture circuit, and they were burning through money quickly. The vaudeville show largely consisted of a demonstration of her signing, lip reading etc. and question and answer session on her politics, blindness, and social issues. Do an internet search. Here's a quick blurb.
