The era between the 1920s and 1940s is regarded as the golden age of light music and musical theatre. All over the world this music was being played on peoples wireless radios and record players.
This show takes you on a journey through the streets of Paris with the resonating songs of Edith Piaf, Erik Satie, and Francis Poulenc to the vibrant musical scene on London’s West End to hear the genius of forgotten heroes Ivor Novello, Noel Coward and Julian Slade.
Hop on a ship across the Atlantic and indulge in the influence of jazz in the light-music world with Broadway classics by Porter, Gershwin, Rodgers, Hart and Hammerstein.
Duration: 1hr 45 minutes approximately – including intermission.
