It's December 1942, and New York's little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade. That's the setting for The 1940's Radio Hour, a timeless play full of classic tunes sung in four- and five-part harmony. With its dance routines, swinging music -- including "Ain't She Sweet," "Blue Moon," "You Go to My Head" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" -- and beloved cast of characters, Radio Hour is a perfect holiday treat.

About the Playwright
Alexander Ostrovsky (1823-1886) was a Russian playwright. In his early years, he worked as a clerk in the court system, which gave fodder to many of his characters and early comedies. Dispatched by the tsar to the provinces to report on country life, he was inspired by his travels to write many historical dramas. He enjoyed the patronage of Alexander III and lived comfortably, establishing a theater school and founding a society for playwrights and composers. Several of his plays have been adapted into opera, including The Storm which inspired Ká´ťa Kabanová´, an opera by famous Czech composer Leoš Janá´ček.
