All Night Strut
I went to the "All Night Strut" production at the Pistarckle Theater with some girls from my Zumba class last night. What a fun show. Our Zumba instructor, Joni, was one of the dancers in the show so that's why we got together to see her perform up on stage. The show is set to the music from the 30s and 40s and the dance routines were fun to watch. The show officially opens tonight and plays for three weekends. If you're on island and want to see a fun show, then check it out. Last night was the preview show and it was a packed house with standing room only. We were the last ones in the door so we had to stand in back. But that made it more fun since we got to dance the entire time :-)
Synopsis from The Guide to Musical Theater
A classy, sassy musical celebration of the 1930s and '40s, The All Night Strut! struts its stuff in a two act 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. An international hit, The All Night Strut! has delighted audiences old and young with its sublime music and sheer energy. Famous songs include "Minnie The Moocher", "In The Mood", "Fascinating Rhythm", "Hit That jive, Jack" and "As Time Goes By".
