not to be missed.
Rhythm Of The
Night stars six

a fiery revue with
powerful vocals, Latin-infused music

of color in both lighting and costuming
and yet it was the black and white scenes
that added a lovely air of sophistication
to the revue. The dance styles include
salsa, tango and even a touch of Fosse.

Bananas. Logue leads the ensemble in
the lively All Night Long and The Story
of My Life”as well as other riveting num-
