A riotous, romantic musical romp!
Stewart Lemoine’s irresistibly catchy musical What Gives? is the story of two intrepid but stymied 1930s Manhattan songwriters who are unexpectedly visited by a pair of glamorous and alluringly-attired adventuresses.
In an homage to the great movie musicals of the 1930s, secret glances and riveting dance numbers ensue as the couples experience a whirlwind romance amidst music, moonlight and Chinese food!
