Production à la création:

Yet another compilation show, this time with an ostensible plot to link the numbers. Millie Gibson’s career as a singing star at Harlem’s famous Cotton Club is coming to an end because of her drug addiction, but her niece, Dinah Andrews, is able to step in at the last moment and receive acclaim as a potential star. Fellow performer, Jim Carlton, hopes to get a dried-out Millie to Paris to kick-start a new career, while bandleader Andy Chambers presides overall in a Cab Calloway style.

Commentaires : Once again this was yet another compilation show joining several similar productions in the West End at the time. With the thinnest of plots, it was more or less an excuse to perform the great songs and dances from the era. It lasted five months.
