What does a bank heir dream of? Of course, it is dancing on Broadway, something his mother forbids. Of course, though, she sends him off to foreclose on a small theater in nowhere Nevada where he meets pretty Polly and, of course, devises a plan to save the theater by — of course — putting on a show.
Full of Gershwin hits, the audience can hardly resist singing along to: “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “Embraceable You,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” and the festive, irresistible percussion workout “I Got Rhythm.”
In the dark of the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater in Fort Myers, Florida, we weren’t surprised when the heir got everything he desired (isn’t that what heirs do?), but we were reminded of the importance of pursuing our myriad passions.
