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.

Each story reveals a different side of the rich tapestry of the city and presents encounters and clashes between old and new London. Rita Wolf will perform Shereen Pandit’s “She Shall Not Be Moved,” and other actors will perform stories by Rose Tremain and Andrea Levy (Small Island).
