Imagine traveling back in time, for one night only, to the dark cabarets and speakeasies of New York, Paris, Berlin and Atlantic City filled with gangsters and flappers dancing the Lindy Hop and drinking bootlegged liquor. Relive the days of Prohibition in all its decadence, a time for sipping illicit gin while savoring hot jazz. “Prohibition: The Music of Moulin Rouge, Boardwalk Empire and More!” takes you back to the Roaring ‘20s, the time of crooner Rudy Vallée, dancer Josephine Baker, and trumpeter King Oliver with the music of W. C. Handy, Jelly Roll Morton, Edith Piaf and Kurt Weill. Enjoy vintage imagery and video plus the greatest hits of the era led by conductor Stuart Chafetz including “Mack the Knife,” “La Vie En Rose,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz” and more, arranged by Grammy Award-winner Jeff Tyzik.
