They did 9 films for RKO--including such classics as Roberta, Swing Time, Top Hat, Follow The Fleet, and Shall We Dance--all with wonderful scores by songwriting greats Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George & Ira Gershwin, and Jerome Kern & Dorothy Fields.
Two shows (at 4:30 and 8:30 pm), cabaret seating, bar open throughout each performance in the Tykeson Lobby.
