Go back in time with this Tony Award-winning musical to the height of the New York City Jazz Age, when “moderns” were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love.  Flapper Mille Dillmount is on the hunt for a rich husband but falls for a penniless paperclip salesman instead.  A mix of madcap mistaken identity, high-spirited show tunes and tap-happy production numbers with more kick than bootleg, the show is truly the “bee’s knees!”
