    • Arts

This week, Ira spoke with Burt Kearns, author (along with Jeff Abraham) of “THE SHOW WON'T GO ON: The Most Shocking, Bizarre, and Historic Deaths of Performers Onstage.” In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Kearns talks about the fascinating number of performers who have died onstage, including those who have died on stage in Las Vegas or who have performed here and died elsewhere; the authors’ desire to make this book a recognition of these performers’ contributions, rather than simply a macabre recitation of their deaths on stage; the reaction of relatives and loved ones to publication of the book and their willingness to talk to the authors; and recognition that performers continue to died after the publication of the book.
