Final Curtain is a history of the author's maternal grandparents, Billy DeWolfe and Mabel Keyes DeWolfe, who were prominent in the music and theater world of Boston's North Shore during the early 20th century. Billy was a well known vaudeville actor and theatre manager. Mabel was a professional violinist and leader of several all-women music groups- unusual in her time. Final Curtain provides a look into their personal and professional lives against the background of world events.
