“Will it play in Peoria?” This famous question originated during Peoria's exciting vaudeville days during the 1920s. After a new live act or stage show was produced, it was soon booked into a Peoria theater to test audience reaction to the show. Peoria was viewed as the "typical" American town, if a show could achieve the approval of the Peoria audience, it would be successful anywhere in the country. To "play in Peoria" is not only an old term from vaudeville, but also a catch phrase used today to measure the thoughts and habits of the typical American.
In the past 80 years, Peoria has garnered the "All-American City" award four times. With its excellent public and private schools, a mid-sized private university (Bradley University), the vast array of activities and amenities available, and its low cost of living, Peoria is an outstanding place to live and work. Will you “play in Peoria?”
