Enjoy the music and discover the life of the man who summed up the spirit of a nation and the modern age when Meadow Brook Theatre presents Irving Berlin’s I Love a Piano. Performances of the musical are on select dates, April 19 through May 14 at Meadow Brook Theatre, located on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester.
Music and lyrics are by Irving Berlin. The production was conceived by Ray Roderick and Michael Berkeley.
“I Love a Piano,” a celebration of the music of Irving Berlin, follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of America lives. Along the way, the story come to life with over sixty of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including the classics “Blue Skies,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz” “Cheek to Cheek,” “Always,” “God Bless America,” and, of course, “I Love a Piano.” Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, and a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had “no place in American music – he is American music.”
