Music of the 1930s and 1940s will be revived for the production of “All Night Strut!” at Macon Little Theater.

The international musical revue, directed by Sylvia Haynie and Laura Voss, opens Friday night and runs until March 30.

From jazz and blues to bebop and standard, the musical is expected to excite all fans of swing, whether newly devoted or old-school enthusiasts, said John T. Jones, theater manager.

“The younger generation will enjoy this type of music as much as the older because it shares a lot in common with modern music,” Jones said. “Modern music is built upon jazz and bebop from the 1940s.”

A three-piece band and 21 singers will carry the audience through the jiving streets of Harlem to the nightlife of El Morocco from the times of the Depression to the post war boom.

“Expect a lot of energy, a lot of nostalgia and a good time at the theater,” Jones said.
