Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers all come to toe-tapping life on the Peter Jay Sharp stage in this music-fueled trip down memory lane. Join Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra as the talented ensemble presents period music, dance and fashion from the '20s to the '50s. Part of the Sleeping Around Festival, the evening captures all the romance, mystery and magic of the grand ballrooms of the great New York hotels during the golden age of big band, jazz and swing.

Quotes & Highlights
“Mr. Garbo and Ms. Santos transmit a steady stream of fun. For the audience, the experience is — what’s the word? — buoyant.” —The New York Times
Costumes, props and set pieces expand, deflate and roll, in this funny, mesmerizing and colorful theatrical event.
The excitement begins when a ten-foot cylinder slithers onto the stage and implodes, and before long the entire audience is playing catch with gigantic inflatable props!
Suddenly, a globulating red cube takes on a life of its own, rolling, gliding, tumbling in synch to the music, right up to the edge of the stage. The audience gasps, and the big block teeters dramatically on the brink, quaking and bulging and changing shape.
Now, a lovely ballerina dances a can-can, but her skirt starts to grow longer and longer, becomming a ball gown, then a balloon engulfing her, finally spiriting her away.
Fast-paced, energetic, universally engaging and theatrically clever, Garbo and company mesmerize with imaginative imagery and artistic foolishness.
