The Changing World

The world changes and the change is not limited to any special department, but to the whole. That which might be the rage one year is discarded the next. Many times when a new style appears, it is laughed at, yet when it has gone far enough to be a part of custom or to impress itself from the proper angle, it becomes the rage and the manufacturers are kept busy day and night keeping up with the demand.

The show business is no different than styles of clothes as far as changes are concerned. The plays of the gay nineties that pleased our fathers may be laughed at today. It is true, however, that certain masterpieces live throughout many ages as they are based on such a universal theme and are based on such fundamental emotions that are a part of each age.

The basic principles of magic will never get old. They will always be interesting. However, the style of presentation will vary and must be modified and presented according to popular environment. At the present time we are living in an age of speed, of stimulation and high pressure, and it requires something of a similar nature to create an impression. As to the degree that this is essential, this depends on the locality. People in the cities demand greater action than country people. A performance that may go over with a wallop in a small town might put an audience to sleep in the city, and the speed of the vaudeville stage of the city may be a bit too fast for the smaller town.

This all may change in time however, especially since so many live programs are heard over the radio. City entertainment is now brought closer to the farm and the entertainment of the larger cities is becoming more and more familiar to persons in small towns.
