THE TRUTH BEHIND THE BEARD AND GLASSES >>>

Saul Tannenbaum, as many of you know, is a traveling vaudeville performer who stops in Olympia several times a year - including this weekend for Girls Ahoy!

Since his first show here a year and half ago, Tannenbaum has become well known for his way with a musical medley, his mixed-up sense of history and his big tinted glasses.

And although Tannenbaum has his own Facebook page, many of you know he's a fictional character, played by actor-pianist-director-composer Josh Anderson and created by Anderson and sidekick/scriptwriter Christina Collins.

Many of you know this. But there does seem to be a little bit of confusion on the matter.

"There's a huge part of Saul that's me," Anderson says. "When I have a full beard, people won't refer to me by my name. They'll say, ‘Hey, Saul, how's it going?' If I wear sunglasses and I have a beard, then it's all over."
