Theater at 8,800 feet above sea level.

Post  pinhedz on Tue Jul 24, 2012 9:59 am

In the little town of Creede, Colorado, I just saw the world premiere performance of a play written by a local resident.

It's all about that historic day in 1993, when the following characters all performed at the Chicago World's Fair, and all kinds of shenanigans took place between them--according to the playwright.

Eugen Sandow (I think his real name was something like George Mueller):



Florenz Ziegfield (yes, he was actually there):



Harry Houdini (who was actually named Eric Wiesz):



Bert Williams (possibly he wasn't really there, because he was in California):

Freidrich Krupp was also really there with his gun exhibit, but in the play he dies when a medium brings his wife back to life for a conjugal visit, except it isn't really his wife, it's a prostitute hired by the medium, and the prostitute turns out to be Krupp's long-lost daughter.

So, anyway, what happens is that Krupp ends up dead.

That thing with the prostitute really happened, but I don't think the gent was really Krupp.

I may have been relying too much on my memory, and I reckon most of those people probably were pretty much dead by 1993.

A link to the Houdini thread seems to be in order here:

I had his name wrong--it was actually Friedrich Wilhelm Müller.
