During the years of 1907-1936, The Ziegfeld Follies was a series of variety shows on Broadway that represented everything that was happening in New York City and America. From slapstick comedy routines to the ever-popular showgirls and unforgettable solo performances, the Follies was a presentation of glitz and glamor that mimicked the heartbeat of the syncopated city. Many famous artists made their debut performances in these elaborate theatrical revues and already popular artists performed their show-stopping hits–some of which are featured in The Music of The Night.
