This sparkling romantic music and dance extravaganza follows the jazzy whirl of New York high society in the “Roaring 20’s.” Popular but penniless Susy and her friend Nick devise a get-rich-quick scheme to marry and live off their wedding presents while they help one another look for suitable millionaires. The plan works perfectly… until they fall in love. Based on Edith Wharton’s 1922 novel, this delightful Jazz Age romp asks the age-old question: marry for love… or for the love of money?
