About this show

An honest U.S. senator travels to Louisiana to investigate corruption in the Louisiana Purchase Company. The company's lawyer attempts to divert him via the attentions of two beautiful women, but the senator maintains his integrity and ends up marrying one of them.

Louisiana Purchase is a 1940 musical by Irving Berlin. Set in New Orleans, it satirizes then-Louisiana governor Huey Long.
