"The show is well written, tightly paced, interesting, inquisitive, and enjoyable. Rosemary Loar is not only a formidable vocalist, but communicates with her audience, showing an openness one rarely observes. Arrangements are top notch, musicianship skilled and symbiotic."   Cabaret Scenes

When Harry Met The Duke highlights the musical similarities these two geniuses shared. Born six years apart, both Harold Arlen and Duke Ellington were the sons of musicians and both began playing with a band while still only teenagers. These two men changed the course of American popular music, with influence that reached into jazz, nightclubs, musical theatre and film, and are pivotal figures of The American Songbook.
