Sleight-of-hand artist Ricky Jay is staging a new show at the Geffen Playhouse in Westwood called "Ricky Jay: A Rogues Gallery." Here’s the set-up. On stage, Jay will display vintage posters and playbills of old-time vaudeville and side-show acts. The posters and playbills are from Jay's collection and span hundreds of years. Audience members choose a poster and that triggers Jay to perform a sleight-of-hand trick or tell a story about the poster. Jay told Off-Ramp producer Queena Kim that it could be his most personal show yet.
