The Jazz Age lives on in this light romantic spoof of 1920’s musical comedy. With its catchy tunes, period dances (including the Charleston) and winning sense of humor, it is a sparkling, tongue-in-cheek 1920’s romp in the spirit of No, No, Nanette. Written in the fifties as “a new musical of the twenties,” this is still considered the most successful, and witty of the send-up musicals, with the style of earlier, lighter-hearted and more disarming days.
