Step into the Athenaeum Theatre and travel back to a time when vaudeville was king in The Dueling Gentlemen. A love letter to the once-famous form of entertainment, this show – performed entirely in silence and accompanied by a live original piano composition – focuses on two vaudeville performers whose successful and long-running act is currently crumbling as their friendship begins to fall apart. Watch as their act, “The Ugly Blond,” takes an ugly turn as insecurities, communication issues, alcoholism, betrayal and even attempted murder grind its once-stable gears to a halt.
