Why See I Love a Piano?

The ultimate ode to Irving Berlin

Detroit's Broadway-based regional theatre presents I Love a Piano, an all-encompassing celebration of the legendary music of Irving Berlin - told through the life of a single piano, as it changes hands over the years from family to family in America. Featuring over 60 of Berlin's best-loved standards, expect to hear such classics as "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." A poignant journey through the years that also provides laughter.

Written by script-writing team Ray Roderick and Michael Berkeley, this intimate jukebox musical features a six-strong ensemble cast, where each member is given the chance to display their vocal talents - the piano situated on stage is backed up by an onstage band as we follow its progress through seven decades and scenes of the 20th century, including an Edwardian-era parlor, a '20s speakeasy, a silent movie theater, a Depression-era dance hall, a WWII canteen and a 1950s summer-stock theater.
