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.

Reviews & Ratings
Laurie Anderson performs Hannah Tinti’s (author of The Good Thief and editor of One Story Magazine) “Milestones” inspired by Miles Davis’ classic piece of the same name. Brandon Lewis (trumpet), David Frazier (drums) and Michael Forzano (bass) will perform a selection from “Milestones.”
Kelli O’Hara (South Pacific) and two-time Tony winner James Naughton sing and read a story by E.L. Doctorow about the inspiration of the song “Stardust.”
Kelli O’Hara also performs Carson McCullers’ “Wunderkind,” drawn from the author’s own failed teenage career as a concert pianist; her reading will be preceded by a performance of Beethoven’s Opus 26 by pianist Derin Oge.
