Escapism time tonight. The glorious Irving Berlin songs from the original film. I never saw the movie but am told the script was pretty faithful to it. I found the first part of the first act dragged with all the exposition, but hit it’s stride in the penultimate scene with “Slap the Blues Away” and kept rolling from there. The performers were universally fabulous and the band was great. Of course the music is astounding. All in all it is a terrific evening and a way to certainly slap your blues away.
