Ted Sperling presents George and Ira Gershwin’s Of Thee I Sing
Full of a hit-filled score, this semi-staged concert version of one of George and Ira Gershwin’s finest creations will feature Broadway performers, and is a hilarious and timeless all-American political satire that is as relevant as ever!
MasterVoices’ production features Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), Denée Benton (The Great Comet), Kevin Chamberlin (The Addams Family), Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town), Chuck Cooper (The Life), Brad Oscar (Something Rotten!), Fred Applegate (Wicked), David Pittu (LoveMusik), and Mo Rocca (CBS Sunday Morning) in a tale of truth, justice, and corn muffins.
With a book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, written during the time of their famed association with the Marx Brothers, Of Thee I Sing skewers electoral politics with lines that could be ripped from today’s headlines, and was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize (1931). In addition to the title song, it features such hits as “Love is Sweeping the Country” and “Who Cares.”
