About

A boozing, womanizing crooner is haunted by the misdeeds of his past in this sexy and swingin’ comedy, set at the end of the Radio’s Golden Age. It’s 1956, and Dean Newhouse is the caddish host of a radio variety show that’s facing a dangerous new foe…Television. Dean has double-crossed everyone on his show, including the tragic soap queen, the All-American teen couple, the hard-boiled detective, his wisecracking sidekick, and others! As Dean struggles to keep his show afloat – and his cast from killing him – we’re treated to an original score that draws from genre music of the 40’s and 50’s to reinvent the story of a controversial classic – Don Giovanni – to startling comic and dramatic effect.

Press

“One of the fest’s most inventive musicals [and] also one of its most successful.”

VARIETY

"The savvy new musical Going Down Swingin' (The Don Giovanni Radio Hour)...a thoroughly scrumptious affair.... and, the entire cast sizzles."​
