Tom plays the son of a wealthy New York banking family and frustrated Broadway hoofer who is sent to close down a failing threatre. But he falls for the daughter of the theatre’s proprietor and, in the guise of a Hungarian impresario, decides to save the theatre by putting on a show.

Charlotte Wakefield, whose television credits include Holby City and Waterloo Road, is cast opposite Tom.
