Show History



The All Night Strut! A Jumpin' Jivin' Jam premiered to tremendous success at the Marriott Theatre in Lincolnshire on December 6, 2006, and continued its scheduled run through February 11, 2007. It was conceived by the Marriott's Artistic Director, Aaron Thielen, and the acclaimed choreographer, Mark Robin.


The All Night Strut! A Jumpin' Jivin' Jam is based on its predecessor, The All Night Strut!, which was originally conceived by Fran Charnas and premiered at the State Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1976 before it went on to an Off-Broadway run in 1979 and then a PBS television special in 1988. The updated revision takes largely from the original, still capturing and celebrating the music of the 1930s and '40s with many of the most popular standards of that era.
