Bohemians in Brooklyn

“What happens when a poet, an author, a composer, his lover, and a book-loving stripper all move into the same house in quiet, wartime Brooklyn? Arguments, indulgence, infestation, questionable relationships of every description, a murder mystery, plenty of reasons for the neighbours to bang on the walls and, just possibly, some truly wonderful art.” A potent mix of cabaret, social history, very juicy gossip, glorious music and all parts fun.
