Clayborne recounts the history of Washington's Turnage Theatre. It was in danger of demolition in the 1990s, but through the efforts of a nonprofit, the theatre was restored and reopened in 2007. Clayborne's article describes the vaudeville section of the theatre on the uppermost floor. It could seat 900 and the leading vaudeville stars performed there. That section of the Turnage is still awaiting restoration.
