For one night, the State Theatre opens its curtained portal to the past so that audiences can glimpse a time when the Philly sound dominated and velvet-voiced singers in synchronized suits crooned soulful songs of love and heartbreak. The Stylistics take center stage with renditions of their classic hits such as "Betcha by Golly, Wow" and the immortal, bittersweet ballad "You Are Everything." Also playing are the Chi-Lites, of the irresistibly funky "Are You My Woman," and the Emotions––the trio of divas that penned 1977's "Best of My Love." The oft-sampled Delfonics heat up the stage with smooth spins, sharp suits, and controlled fires, as do The Blue Notes, who keep up an energetic stage presence in their heartbreaker "The Love I Lost."

With ornate gold and ivory borders around the stage and opera boxes, the State Theatre lends its elegance to the evening's events. First opened as a vaudeville house more than 90 years ago with four murals by American modernist James Daugherty decorating the lobby, the theater today packs its 3,200 seats so that audiences can witness plays, concerts, and 3,199 potential hairdos.
