For a 1913 revival at the same theatre the young actors Gerald Ames and A. E. Matthews succeeded the creators as Jack and Algy. [38] John Deverell as Jack and Margaret Scudamore as Lady Bracknell headed the cast in a 1923 production at the Haymarket Theatre . [39] Many revivals in the first decades of the 20th century treated "the present" as the current year. It was not until the 1920s that the case for 1890s costumes was established; as a critic in The Manchester Guardian put it, "Thirty years on, one begins to feel that Wilde should be done in the costume of his period—that his wit today needs the backing of the atmosphere that gave it life and truth. … Wilde's glittering and complex verbal felicities go ill with the shingle and the short skirt." [40]

Andrea Huelsenbeck, Teacher of General Music at Weinberg, had this to say about the presentation: "Weinberg Elementary has been a beneficiary of the Arizona Classic Jazz Society sponsored concerts for many years, and they are consistently excellent. This year’s addition of professional dancers to the 52 Street Band, demonstrating the Charleston, Lindy Hop and other dances, created another layer of experience for our students, many of whom might never have an opportunity to hear jazz music performed live. To see the delight on the faces of the students and teachers alike brings joy to my heart. Thank you so much for coming."

This 45 minute (or 1 hour) Jazz History program was developed to educate children about the origins and early stages of jazz and dance history.  Jazz is defined as improvisation, syncopation and swing, accompanied by dances such as the Charleston, Balboa, Lindy Hop and Collegiate Shag.  Through songs representing the jazz era, the relationship of jazz and dance development are tied to major events in American History during the first half of the twentieth century: such things as early days in New Orleans, WWI, the first jazz recording, prohibition, major migration of blacks from the south to Chicago, organized crime impact during the roaring twenties, musician migration to New York, and the reasons for the decline of dancing to jazz music.
