Majestic Theater presents Irving Berlin's
 "I Love A Piano"

The Majestic Theater invites you to take a nostalgic musical journey with Irving Berlin's "I Love A Piano" on Wednesday September 30 at 8:00 p.m. This live performance spans seven decades of American history as seen through the eyes of Irving Berlin, America's most beloved songwriter.

Using 64 of Berlin's enduring and popular favorites, I Love A Piano captures the spirit of America from the ragtime era of the early 20th century through the swinging elegance of the 1920's and 30's. From the songs that inspired a nation through the Great Depression to the innocent optimism of the 1950's, I Love A Piano embarks on an enduring journey through musical heaven. Timeless classics, such as "Puttin' On The Ritz," "There's No Business Like Show Business," "Change Partners," "How Deep Is The Ocean,""God Bless America," and "White Christmas," do more than identify the music of a generation, they define the music of our country.

Beginning September 13th, I Love A Piano will bring its exuberant show-stopping song and dance numbers to audiences across the nation. This Fall marks the start of its third touring season. Under the direction and choreography of Ray Roderick (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang National Tour), who co-created the show with Michael Berkely, the magic of each song brings new life to the material for a contemporary audience. This revitalized production brings today's audiences into the lavish musical world of Irving Berlin while holding true to its nostalgic nature. "When asked where Irving Berlin ranked in American music, Jeffrey Gabel, founding executive of the Majestic Theater said, 'Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He is American music.'

Variety reviewed it by saying: "Ray Roderick may love a piano, but his heart truly belongs to Irving Berlin. Roderick directed and choreographed this tribute revue and co-wrote it with Michael Berkeley. His affection for Berlin's songs has resulted in an energetic, animated presentation of nearly 60 of Berlin's tunes, ranging from 1911's "Alexander's Ragtime Band" to selections from 1950's "Call Me Madam."
