The first Musical Theatre production of the year runs Oct. 19 -28 at the Experimental Theatre.
"I Love a Piano" presents more than 60 of Berlin’s well-known American classics.
There is a little something for everyone in the first musical theatre production of the 2012-13 academic year.
“I Love a Piano”, an Irving Berlin revue, opens Oct. 19 at the Experimental Theatre and runs through Oct. 28.
About the production
The revue follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present.
Presenting more than 60 of Berlin’s well-known American classics such as “Cheek to Cheek,” “Puttin' on the Ritz," and, “I Love a Piano”, the play captures seven decades of American history in song and dance.
“The audience will enjoy two hours of singing and dancing, and leave feeling uplifted,” said Paula Kalustian, the show’s director and a musical theatre faculty member.
The cast, comprised completely of master of fine arts students, includes many actors that have performed professionally on and off Broadway, nationally and internationally with a variety of theatre productions, as well as on television.
Every other year (during even-numbered years), the School of Theatre, Television, and Film admits students into its two-year, 60-unit graduate musical theatre degree program. “I Love a Piano” marks the inaugural performance for the 2014 MFA class.
