Chautauqua Shows, Real and Otherwise

Record #:
A road show, called the Chautauqua, originated in the small town of Chautauqua, New York. Two dramatic groups were organized to tour the country, usually performing plays with some underlying moral principle. The Chautauqua ultimately became a road show, combining a revival and a county fair. Other fraudulent Chautauquas sprung up, but none was ever as successful or morally conscious as the original.\r\n
