A Waldman and Uhry score, with a book by Conn Fleming (a bookwriter/playwright unknown to me). A pre-"Bandstand" styled show that flopped big. My dear friend, the late, great Roy Brocksmith was in it.

Directed by Stuart Ostrow. This part of a Washington Post article made me smile; a brag about "Here's Love."

"I decided to direct 'Swing' myself, as I had done with 'Here's Love,' because I knew exactly what I wanted. I knew I wanted a bandstand that would glide into different perspectives, angles, for the different episodes. I could see it in my mind. I knew the very guy who could do that, Robin Wagner, whose work you've seen a lot of at Arena Stage and who designed those great train effects for 'On the Twentieth Century.'
