Behind The Scenes

A rare behind the scenes rehersal photo from the 1943 production of Emphysema On Parade! Cancelled after only three controversial performances, it was generally considered to be not a patch on the previous year's production, The Nicoteeny Tots!

(Not a patch! See what I did there!? Ok never mind, as you were.)

Yes. I am old like that.

But I think that concept for a stage play has strong possibilities!

I was hoping for a shot of Chaw McGraw, the hunk who played the tap dancing Chewing Tobacco.

I'm with a website called Experience Project (www.experienceproject.com) and we recently documented the first day of gay marriages in San Francisco. We're just reaching out to some of the blogs of the community members who might be interested, so I thought I'd give you a link to the page:


The main link is at www.lgbt2008.com?r=bc, but the above link leads directly to a bunch of pictures and videos of the day. Let me know what you think! kate@experienceproject.com. Have a great day!
