Danny Miller's upcoming Broadway musical Swinging the Muses contains inaccurate portrayals of the Greek Muses, most upsetting to the goddess Terpsichore. Under the eye of Mr. Jordan and Messenger 7013, she descends to Earth as "Kitty Pendleton" to star in the play, and set things right. Sequel to Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), though tooled as a musical.
