Professional reviews

"Redheaded Kit Corrigan is a dancer with a dream who has fled her Providence, Rhode Island, family and her volatile sweetheart, Billy, to head for Broadway lights. Emma Galvin expertly depicts the exciting world of the theater in 1950s New York. The glamour of uptown nightclubs, the mystique of Greenwich Village, and the postwar optimism of young chorus girls play out against a background of the Korean War, Red scares, and nuclear foreboding. When Billy's father, who works for the Mafia, offers her a deal that could help Kit survive in the city, the plot takes a suspenseful turn. Galvin negotiates flashbacks and period details without ever losing the story's tension. At the end, Judy Blundell takes a curtain call to answer listeners' questions with warmth and charm. M.C.T.
