A concert and staged reading of a new musical comedy from the author of Broadway’s Sister ActCinderella, and Xanadu.

It’s the height of the Cold War when Russian spies take over an ocean liner holding all of NATO.  Leave it to lounge singers on board to save the day by teaching the communists to put down their Kalashnikovs and pick up singing, dancing, and comedy. 

The war is cold but the numbers are hot in this show with a ring-a-ding score that might just bring back the Rat Pack!
