A delightful romp through the dance and music of the 1930's and 40's.

Swing's the thing in the The All Night Strut! From touring with the Glenn Miller Orchestra to performing with the Boston Pops, this classy, sassy musical revue has played the world over to record breaking houses and garnered rave reviews from critics.

The All Night Strut! moves through the Depression, World War II and the post war boom in a two-act musical celebration of the 1930's and 40's filled with jazz, blues, bebop and American songbook standards. Weaving together the work of legendary songwriters such as Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Cab Calloway and the Gershwins, the story moves through time and place to highlight a slick slice of yesteryear and capture a beloved American era.

The All Night Strut! is an easy-to-produce crowd pleaser has minimal set requirements and features a small orchestra and a small, flexibly-sized ensemble cast. The classic score has many featured roles that highlight trained singers.

After seeing The All Night Strut! in Toronto, Ella Fitzgerald burst into the dressing room scatting ďIt Donít Mean A Thing If It Ainít Got That Swing.Ē The cast didnít skip a beat, joining her in an improvised jam.
