THE ALL NIGHT STRUT! - A sassy celebration of the 1930s and '40s, this jukebox musical offers a bonanza of the way things were during the Depression, World War II, and the post war boom. From the funky jive of Harlem to the sophisticated elegance of El Morocco and the romance of the Stage Door Canteen, this is an evening filled with jazz, blues, bebop and classic songs filled with the work of legendary songwriters such as Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Cab Calloway and the Gershwins.
