TOP OF THE TOWN is a musical that just sits there without offering anything of value. The razor-thin plot has Manhattan heiress Nolan planning a ballet in the Moonbeam Room, a ballroom 100 stories off the ground. The audience is dreadfully bored, however, until Murphy saves the day by

kicking up a storm with the sound of swing. The wall-to-wall collection of tunes includes: "Blame It on the Rhumba," "Where Are You?" "Jamboree," "Top of the Town," "I Feel That Foolish Feeling Coming On," "There's No Two Ways About It," "Fireman Save My Child" (Harold Adamson, Jimmy McHugh). Some

of the specialty acts include Auer doing a forgettable bit from "Hamlet," The Three Sailors doing a giraffe impersonation, Mayer doing a comic routine at the piano, and Ryan (in her preteen debut) doing a dance number.
