Chautauqua: Miracle Mongers and Their Methods - the American Medicine Show (Virtual Lecture)
Hear the story of America’s early commercialization of pharmaceuticals and the repercussions it had on the American people. Touring medicine shows brought entertainment and the hope of better health to the multitudes, but at what cost? Millions of dollars were made, and the side effects are still evident in American life today.

Included in this performance is the magical recreation of a medicine show, pitchman’s act selling Dr. Tom B. Stone’s Miracle Elixir – “Good for all that ails you!” and with Larry Bounds, you know it’s going to be magical!

By the way, you will be able to catch Larry onstage as Houdini at the 2022 Chautauqua Festival scheduled for June 10 – 19, 2022.
