Ziegfeld's Midnight Frolic
"There I was with silent film star Billie Burke (the ghostly Haleigh Ciel), sitting on a pink cushion inside a giant chandelier suspended high above the Liberty Theatre. "Let's make him jealous," she whispered in my ear, gesturing toward the box occupied by her husband, the legendary impresario Florenz Ziegfeld (Russell Farhang). Suddenly, she planted a big kiss on my cheek. Distracted by multiple showgirls, he didn't seem to mind. Or was it that he saw me, light in my red velvet loafers, as no threat to his virile dominance of the Midnight Frolic?"

“It was kismet,” said Haleigh Ciel, who with Ms. Moskowitz had rushed to the club office to examine its archive (and who is playing Billie Burke at the Liberty). “Nobody we knew had ever heard of the club. But we spent hours there, going through the archives and talking to Laurie.”
"Ciel’s voice and physical ease show a depth to her training and emotional reserves."
