BWW Review: As Time Goes By: THE ALL NIGHT STRUT Revives Music and Memories Photo BWW Review: As Time Goes By: THE ALL NIGHT STRUT Revives Music and Memories
by Carla Maria Verdino-S√ľllwold - Aug 19, 2017

The memories are in the music, and Maine State Music Theatre and Portland Stage's latest co-production struts, sizzles smiles, and sparkles with energy and latent emotion. Classy, funny, lively, touching, vocally and instrumentally beautiful, this tightly constructed revue, The All Night Strut, offers a journey to an era where the world was in turmoil, time moved more slowly, hearts were worn on sleeves, and swing was the thing. Performed in a stylish production with a quartet of stunning soloists and a trio of fine musicians, this soundtrack of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s tells its story in song and dance and offers theatre-goers a wholly satisfying and warmly memorable experience.
