Irving Berlin's I Love A Piano

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.

The Foreigner

A CLASSIC SIDE-SPLITTING COMEDY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY When Froggy brings his friend Charlie to a fishing lodge, Charlie is feeling a bit unsociable. Hoping to help his friend, Froggy has the perfect solution—just tell everyone Charlie doesn’t speak English! But things start to go awry when Charlie suddenly finds himself privy to everyone’s secrets, including a plot to take over the lodge. Charlie must “learn” English quickly and think on his feet if he wants to save the lodge and his new friends. Originally written for The Rep, The Foreigner returns for the first time in over a decade after playing to millions worldwide, and becoming one of the most celebrated comedies of all time.
