Additional Info

This off-Broadway musical is based on the campy nostalgia of the Hollywood Astaire and Rogers musicals of the Thirties. The scene is New York. Airplane heroes are signed to do a Broadway Show, they combine it with a fashion show for a failing dress shop. But an irate spurned French star prevents the show from being done in any Broadway theatre so they decide to do it on airplanes with the audience on the Empire State Building.

From the author of Curley McDimple.
