Around the time Eddie Cantor was “Makin’ Whoopee,” young Hollywood spotted old Dame Broadway across a crowded country. He flirted until she could resist no longer. Thus began a beautiful relationship—filled with creativity, challenges and, of course, romance—that has lasted nearly a century. Experience this unique and remarkable love story, beautifully told through backstage stories, delectable anecdotes, and the best music of both worlds.
