This is great... who knew that Scranton was connected to all those players. We also had some greats come from the area. ( )

In the late 1800's Scranton became a "dog" city as far as theatricals and music according to author Nancy McDonald and she explains why and then gives a very concise description of all who played Scranton from Caruso to Liberace to Def Leppard. ( )

"If You Can Play Scranton" is a theatrical history of America as seen through the famous performers who came to Scranton, Pennsylvania. It discusses performances by the best known actors and actresses of the tragic and comic stage, ethnic performers, vaudevillians, musical comedy, concert, orchestra and band performers from 1871-2010. At the turn of the 20th century, Scranton was one of the most famous try-out towns for legitimate stage productions. The sophisticated taste of its audience, created by extensive exposure to world renown talent, continues to this day.
