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.

This two-part evening starts at The Metropolitan Museum of Art as you explore the classic black and white street photography of Robert Frank, drawn from his photo book The Americans, published in 1959 following a road trip around America.
Then head across the park to Symphony Space, where, at 8 pm, you’ll hear performances of stories by Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, Aleksandar Hemon and others that resonate with the images, and get an entirely new perspective on both the visual and written works. Performers include Boyd Gaines (Gypsy) and Condola Rashad (Lynn Nottage’s Ruined).
