About This Show

Encores! presents the first full-scale restoration of Irving Berlin and Moss Hart’s Face the Music, a 1932 musical about a desperate producer in New York trying to raise the money for his latest revue, Rhinestones of ’32. The show, one of Berlin’s personal favorites, contains a pair of depression-era classics – “Let’s Have Another Cup of Coffee” and “Soft Lights and Sweet Music.”

New York City Center Encores! has, since 1994, celebrated the rarely-heard works of America’s most important composers and lyricists. Conceived as “concert versions,” each Encores! season gives three scores the chance to be heard as originally intended by their creators.
