The Star of Happiness Theme song was written for Helen’s vaudeville act in 1920 and was recorded for us by the lovely voiced Christina B of the Starlight Girls.
The Star of Happiness: Helen Keller on Vaudeville?!
Historical fact and schoolyard humor collide in dr. michelle-leona godin’s autobiographical treatment of Helen Keller’s time on vaudeville. This one woman, two voice, three act play gropes toward an understanding of what it’s like to be the blind spectacle. Irreverent humor rubs up against reverential admiration in the patchwork of jokes, philosophy, biography and the sound and vision scapes that call attention to both the joys and superficialities of the sensory experience.
