The Revue Review: A Musical Redux Presentation
Roger Grodsky, musical director

During its golden years from World War I until the Great Depression, one of the most popular forms of entertainment was the “revue.” Combining music, dance and sketches with a sophisticated, satirical point of view, the revues delighted audiences with songs by the likes of Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart, Irving Berlin, Eubie Blacke, Noel Coward, the Gershwin brothers and Fats Waller. The Revue Review looks back at these long-forgotten shows, presented in the acclaimed minimalist style of CCM Redux.
