hello dear woolf ones,
So sad we won't be in person this year.
I have a quirky query--does anyone know anything about Woolf and the
extremely popular music hall performer, Vesta Tilley, who impersonated
males? The only references I have found so far to VW and music halls are
diary entries and Night and Day . . . .
I haven't dug into the music hall search yet, but thought I'd cheat and ask
If this rings any bells, or if you know of someone working in this area,
please let me know.
Be safe, and remember, this virus will pass away .. . . . .
