Swinging sounds of big band music and hilarious backstage antics
This family-friendly musical opens with I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo and closes with I'll be Seeing You. It's December 1942, and broken down New York radio station WOV is prepping for the final broadcast of the Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade, a seasonal treat for the troops overseas. This gem of a holiday musical is filled with colorful characters, big dance numbers, and lots of heart. Love is Here to Stay, Blue Moon, Strike Up the Band and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas are just a few of the chart-topping hits you'll be humming as you leave the theatre.
