THE Who Said Vaudeville Was Dead? SHOW is Austin’s vintage musical variety show, reviving vaudeville from the dead and coming back to life in the spotlight.  Both highbrow and lowbrow performers will be abandoning their empty graves to perform at Padre’s Marfa and Terlingua’s finest dinner theater, The Starlight Theatre.  Join the charismatic cast for a night of side-splitting, jaw dropping, musically and visually delightful vaudevillian entertainment.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and perhaps, you’ll die… begging for more!

Producer and Performer, Jessica Ryan, hosts the show as her well-rounded lovable character of the undead, Vaude-Villa.  She will be singing her cold dead heart out, covering Helen Kane aka “Betty Boop” tunes.  Her classic old-timey monologues from the the dust bowl era and original silent films will return the audience to a long-lost time almost forgotten, “the golden age”.


1930’s classics will be performed by the legendary brassy voice of Ol’ Bruce Salmon on his steel guitar, accompanied by the quick-fingered Austin Smith on the violin.

The variety entertainment entails circus aerial trapeze acts performed by the stunning and daring Erinina Marie Ness, hailing all the way from New York City.

Terlingua’s Firefly, Sandi Turvan, will be sailing high into the heavens on aerial silks and spinning flames straight from the gates of hell.

Come one, come all, dead or alive!
