Vaudeville 2

Smart. Shameless. Out-of-Control Comedy!

The Lensic and Ron Bloomberg proudly present Vaudeville 2, the second-annual salute to The Lensic’s early days as a 1930s vaudeville venue.

Created by veteran comedy and television writer, Ron Bloomberg, this high-energy variety show features hilarious and talented Santa Fe artists performing comedy, music, dance, circus-style contortion, and more!

The Vaudeville 2 cast features, Joel Aalberts, Ron Bloomberg, Ty Cooper, Leslie Livingston, Patrick McDonald & Christine Marie Smith, Liam Merkle, Pamela Post, plus The Unreal Housewives of Santa Fe (Beth Ann Kennedy, Debriana Mansini, Robyn Reede, Michele Schneider, and Celine Rosario-Lopez). Special performances by the Marx Brothers and Buster Keaton.

These local artists perform in the spirit of legendary vaudeville stars like Judy Garland, Rudy Vallee, Walter Pidgeon, and Rita Hayworth—all of whom performed at The Lensic after it first opened, in 1931, as a vaudeville venue and movie palace.

The all-new production, like summer 2018’s popular Vaudeville at The Lensic, is created and directed by Ron Bloomberg and produced by Linda Krull, with co-producers Robyn Reede and Michele Schneider, David Geist serves as music director.

Available at, 505-988-1234, or the Lensic box office at 211 W. San Francisco Street, Santa Fe
