Assisted by the brilliant talent of Glen Heroy, Jenny Lee Mitchell has an emotional moment.

Emotional and seriously demented ‘diva’ (Jenny Lee Mitchell) goes for the gun and makes the audience shiver.

Besides writing a blog about American Vaudeville (Travalanche) also presents some of NY’s finest variety performers in his AMERICAN VAUDEVILLE THEATRE.

This year he has outdone himself by hosting, writing and performing skits in all the 5 shows he is producing at 45 Bleecker St. as part of the FRINGE NY Festival.

Opening the show with a nice dance number TRAV S.D. gets the ball rolling.
