Vaudeville is “a theatrical genre of variety entertainment, consisting of a series of separate, unrelated acts grouped together on a common bill.” Typical shows include dancers, magicians, singers, comedians, musicians, acrobats, athletes, actors, animals and pretty much anything else you could think of. Vaudeville was most popular in North America from the 1880s-1930s. Vaudeville / burlesque dancers are some original bandit babes with the best costumes. Notice the great detail in their costumes, from intricate beading, tassels and sequins to their extravagant feather headdresses. Not to mention, Vaudeville posters are the coolest to look at, with great vintage typography and design inspiration.
