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.

Marian Seldes performs an excerpt from Virgil’s Aeneid, Phylicia Rashad performs an excerpt from Dante’s Inferno, and a third actor performs an excerpt from Homer’s Iliad. These are just three of the most famous works from the oral literary tradition. From the wrath of Achilles to the swashbuckling adventures of the founder of Rome to the doomed love of Paolo and Francesca, these are gripping stories.
