It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing!  Inspired by Harlem’s famed musical hot spots like The Cotton Club and The Savoy, this swingin’ night of musical sensations focuses on Harlem’s heyday when Duke Ellington’s orchestra was the house band, and Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald and Ethel Waters showcased the classics of the Great American Songbook. This production features the brilliant trumpeter/vocalist/conductor Byron Stripling, vocalist Carmen Bradford and tap dancer Ted Louis Levy.
