The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Of Thee I Sing makes its concert performance debut.
Written by George and Ira Gershwin, this musical comedy masterpiece features witty songs and catchy melodies.
It’s a tuneful satire on American politics set in the run-up to the presidential election. Candidate John P. Wintergreen and his team are trying to discover what the American people care about most – is the answer love?
Wintergreen’s party stage a pageant to find him a wife. Unfortunately, John falls in love not with the winner, the beautiful Diana Devereaux, but with the sensible Mary Turner…
The show takes on political idealism, corruption and incompetency, and reveals that love can affect not just domestic relations but international ones too…
The score is peppered with sing-along songs including ‘Who Could Ask For Anything More?’ and ‘Of Thee I Sing’.
This musical gem is staged in concert format for the very first time.
