The third longest-running show in Broadway history, this show is a song and dance celebration of Broadway in the 1930s. If you like tap, this show is for you! It is based on the novel by Bradford Ropes about an aspiring chorus girl, Peggy Sawyer, and takes us along her journey to become a star. This Tony Award winning musical was directed and choreographed by Gower Champion. It opened on Broadway in 1980, starring Jerry Orbach, Tammy Grimes and Wanda Richert, recreating the classic backstage movie musical of the same name.

Musical hits include “You're Getting To Be a Habit With Me,” “I Know Now,” “We’re In The Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off To Buffalo” and the title song.

Music and lyrics:Jerry Leiber
Mike Stoller

Broadway’s longest-running musical revue, this show is a high-octane, high-steppin' celebration of two songwriters – Leiber and Stoller. Their timeless songs transforms classic pop music into compelling musical theater. It received seven Tony nominations and a Grammy Award during its run.

Musical highlights are from the 50’s and 60’s and include “On Broadway”, “Fools Fall In Love”, “Kansas City”, “Love Potion #9”, “Stand By Me”, “I’m A Woman” and many more for your enjoyment.

Music:Cy Coleman

The spirit of Florenz Ziegfeld lives again as this musical takes you on a bewitching tour of the life and times of the legendary Will Rogers with one dazzling number after another. Rogers’ rope-twirling, homespun humor is more widely appealing amidst sensational production numbers and panache of the original “Ziegfeld Follies” which dazzled audiences during the 1920s & 1930s. This musical opened on Broadway in 1991, starring Keith Carradine and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Several national touring companies have since presented it in major cities across the country.

Songs include: “Will-A-Mania,” “Give Me Enough Rope,” “Once In A While” and “Never Met A Man I Didn't Like.”
