About This Show

by Michael Leeds

Based on the fabulous lyrics of Johnny Burke, this “dazzling, toe-tapping, finger-snapping delight” of a musical revue features over 40 tunes including such classics as “Pennies From Heaven,” “What’s New,” “Imagination,” “Misty,” “Here’s That Rainy Day,” and Academy Award-winning “Swinging on a Star.” ??The songs, performed by seven singer/actor/dancers, are perfectly woven into scenes and settings, including a 1920’s speakeasy, a World War II USO tour and a Paramount pictures studio where Bob Hope and Bing Crosby are filming their “Road Show” pictures.”

“Johnny Burke wrote his songs with moonbeams! Songs poured out of him like life-renewing raindrops, glinting like pennies.” –NY Times.

Directed and Choreographed by Darlene Zoller, Musical Direction by Colin Britt.
