A comic classic with satire that feels ripped from today’s headlines, Of Thee I Sing was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize when it debuted in 1931. With a tuneful and witty score by George and Ira Gershwin and a libretto by Kaufman and Ryskind, written during the time of their famed association with the Marx Brothers, MasterVoices’ production features Bryce Pinkham (A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder), Denée Benton (The Great Comet), Kevin Chamberlin (The Addams Family), and Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town) in a tale of truth, justice, and corn muffins. Warning: no matter your political persuasion, it may remind you of some people you know!
