WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Skulking villains! Unrequited love! A merrily madcap treatise on the follies of love, war and business! 42nd Street Moon's Ira Gershwin celebration continues with this sublimely silly smash hit. Complete with logical insanity worthy of the Marx Brothers (for whom Kaufman wrote Broadway libretti as well as movie scripts), Strike Up The Band is a tongue-in-cheek tale of an American businessman who leads the US into war with Switzerland over... cheese. The show received rave reviews when revived by New York's Encores! series in 1998 -- the New York Times declared it "a show that remains remarkably vital, with a score as sweet and varied as a chocolate sampler. It reminds us that Broadway musicals once had sass, wit and sex appeal." The golden Gershwin score includes the iconic title song, "The Man I Love," "I've Got a Crush On You," "Soon" and "Hangin' Around With You."
