Irving Berlin's Musical, "I Love A Piano" will perform Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 7:30 p.m. "I Love A Piano" is an enchanting theatrical journey about a piano that passes through several owners, beginning in the Tin Pan Alley era, circa 1911, when Berlin launched his career, and ending during a late-1950s summer-stock casting session for Berlin's 1946 musical, "Annie Get Your Gun." Using 64 of Berlin’s enduring and popular favorites, "I Love A Piano" captures the spirit of America from the Ragtime rhythms of the early 20th century through the swinging sophistication of the 1920s and 30s., and from the sentimental songs that inspired a nation during two World Wars to the innocent optimism of the 1950’s. Timeless classics, such as “White Christmas,” “God Bless America,” “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” do more than define the music of a generation, they define the music of our country.
