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
Editor Philip Gourevitch and Senior Editor Nathaniel Rich co-host a night of new voices from the pages of The Paris Review. For more than 50 years, The Paris Review has been the place to find the exciting new writers of the day. Philip Roth, V. S. Naipaul, T. C. Boyle, Ann Patchett, Edward P. Jones, Ha Jin and Rick Moody all made debuts in the pages of the Review. In the past three years, under its new leadership, the magazine has again given national exposure to an extraordinary range of masterful new voices in fiction—writers distinguished both by their originality and by their ability tell a truly memorable story. Among these new stars are the writers represented at this event: Karl Taro Greenfeld, Lisa Halliday and Daniel Kehlmann. Performers include Campbell Scott, Isaiah Sheffer and B. D. Wong.
This event is part of the series Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story.
