Step right up for the Medicine Show, America's old-time entertainment
that promises good health as well as a good time.
Join our virtual performance as we recreate the ballyhoo, the laughs
and tears, and the old-time music that made the traveling medicine
show a hit for more than a century. It was family entertainment
at its best:
comics tickled the funny bone, ventriloquists and contortionists
dazzled the mind, string-bands and buckdancers got your foot stompin.
But no med show was complete without smooth-tongued practitioner
selling his miracle cures.
Come one and all, great and small on our cybertour of the great
Medicine Show. It's just what the doctor ordered.
Just follow the magic buttons on the left, and work your way on down
the Med Show road starting with the program, "Today's Show."
no Sore it
will Not Heal,
No Pain it
will not Subdue."
