It Don't Mean A Thing If it Ain't Got That Swing, so Get In The Mood to Jump, Jive & Wail and experience That Old Black Magic in this swingin' Zoot Suit Riot time travel adventure!
1946 was a long time ago. Or was it?
Ex-gangster turned entertainer Johnny Dellarocca was propelled into his future, our present, during the Chronal Rift Event of 1946. What’s a time traveling magician to do when he’s stranded in the future? Recruit some showgirls and put on a show. Of course!
The show features hit swing music from the mid-20th century, John Pyka’s patented award-winning magic full of comedy and audience participation, high energy dance, and thrilling variety acts by the incomparable Bombshell Kittens! It is a complete, self-contained Las Vegas and Broadway styled show reminiscent of the classic floor shows of the swing era supper clubs.
Production numbers include “It Don’t Mean a Thing”, “Minnie the Moocher”, “Jump, Jive & Wail” and show highlights also include John’s championship “Mack the Knife” routine and the “Nearly World Famous” Lemon Trick!
Show length can vary from 30 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the venue and event (We recommend the full 90 minute theater show!) and is designed to meet the needs and technical requirements of rural theaters that seat between 200 - 500. It is also a great option for after dinner entertainment, casinos, cruise ships, or any venue that needs big entertainment, that packs small and loads in quick!
THE BOMBSHELL KITTENS
Lana LaMoore, Lucy Hulagan, Honey Love, Mitzi and Ginger Lee. The Bombshell Kittens are singers, dancers, and variety artists who really light up the stage! They are each solo artists/acts who appear depending on the venue, audience rating, and the scale of the show!
