Take one landmark hotel – the Algonquin, add one world famous cabaret showcase – the Oak Room, mix in six elegant, talented singer/actors, a jazzy, bubbly period 20’s score, some dapper dances, lots of gorgeous costumes, a great pianist, the wit of Edith Wharton and a guest artist who gets to sing a wonderful song “Right Here, Right Now” and what do you get?… Glimpses of the Moon, a delightful frothy evening of idle rich fun. – Oscar E Moore, Talk Entertainment.com
