Since the show opened on Broadway nearly 45 years ago, the 1930's-'40s nostalgia craze that helped propel its popularity may have waned, but it magically returns for a few hours at the Hanna Theatre. That's when the singing-dancing dynamos Tyrick Wiltez Jones, Jessie Cope Miller, William Knowles (as the Fats Waller character), Britney Mack and David Robbins embrace the art-deco emblazoned thrust-stage (designed by Stanley Meyer and lit by Trad A. Burns) with the titular opening number, and the mood never swings anywhere but up.

Bottom Line: Unbothered by a plot (and that’s a plus and a compliment), this Great Lakes season finale is a delightful way to have a good time and to remember that your great-grandparents or great-great-grandparents were not always old.
