New York City
From Tin Pan Alley to Broadway, from Hollywood to both World Wars, The Melody Lingers On is a story about the American Dream.
Following Irving Berlin’s life, from poverty as a Jewish immigrant on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to his world-wide fame as one of America’s most prolific songwriters, the musical is a contemporary and compelling love story featuring such number one hits as “White Christmas,” “God Bless America,” “Puttin’ On The Ritz,” “Cheek to Cheek,” and “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm.”
So come, spend two hours celebrating the life of the man who was the champion of our troops overseas, the writer of the most popular song of all time, and the creator of the song we all sing during the seventh inning of ballgames.
For as Jerome Kern once wrote “Irving Berlin has no place in American Music; He is American Music.”
