A CELEBRATION OF IRVING BERLIN

As a piano with one sour note passes from owner to owner, it takes the audience on a musical journey through American history told by Irving Berlin’s timeless songs. From Ragtime to the swinging 1920s to the songs that inspired a nation in the Great Depression, I Love a Piano embarks on an exuberant journey of more than 50 Berlin classics such as “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “There’s No Business like Show Business,” “God Bless America” and “White Christmas.” Declared an “unforgettable tribute” by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, these songs do more than identify the music of a generation: they define the music of our country.

What's I Love a Piano? SHould I see it?

Even if you don’t recognize the name, you undoubtedly know the music. Irving Berlin wrote holiday standards like “White Christmas,” and “Easter Parade,” and toe tappers like “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” and “Steppin’ Out With My Baby.” Not only is the music fantastic, but each of our four actors are the complete package—they’ll dance, sing and tickle the ivories.
