Victor Lang Brings THE WAY IT WAS to The Grand 1894 Opera House Today
The Grand 1894 Opera House opens its annual summer entertainment season today, June 7, at 4 pm, with a delightful evening of Island facts, fictions, and fantasies shared by Galveston's favorite conversationalist, Victor Lang.
In his one-man tribute, "The Way It Was," Lang uncovers - with all proper respect and the right amount of humor - the treasured memories of generations that have shaped beach and bay culture and conversations. Whether you're a native Galvestonian (BOI), an Islander by choice (IBC) or a visitor, you won't want to miss the fun!
Victor Lang is a native Galvestonian who worked as a Congressional staffer and lobbyist in the private sector for over forty years. [According to Lang, his years as a young Galveston bordello piano player helped prepare him for his political career!] He has taught Public Speaking at Texas A&M University at Galveston; participated on the Review of Texas Books panel at Lamar University; and served as an Elderhostel lecturer. His column, "Victor Lang Remembers," appeared regularly on the Guidry News Service. Lang is the author of two one-man shows, "Tales of Galveston," and "Washington: Fact and Fable."
