Miracle Mongers and Their Methods – the American Medicine Show with Larry Bounds
December 14, 2021@7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Experience an historic recreation of a medicine show pitchman’s act selling Dr. Tom B. Stone’s Miracle Elixir – “Good for all that ails you!” And with Larry Bounds, you know it’s going to be magical!
Discover the story of America’s early commercialization of pharmaceuticals and the repercussions it had on the American people. Touring medicine shows brought entertainment and the hope of better health to the multitudes, but at what cost? Millions of dollars were made, and the side effects are still evident in American life today. Sound familiar??
