Street Scenes
Book Description:

Street Scenes focuses on the intersection of modern city life and stage performance. From street life and slumming to vaudeville and early cinema, to Yiddish theater and blackface comedy, Esther Romeyn discloses racial comedy, passing, and masquerade as gestures of cultural translation. Ultimately, she demonstrates how these diverse and potent immigrant works influenced the emergence of a modern metropolitan culture.
