MasterVoices | Ted Sperling, Conductor
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), Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town), David Pittu (Love Musik), and Zach Grenier (The Good Wife), in a tale of truth, justice, and corn muffins. Warning: no matter your political persuasion, it may remind you of some people you know!
MasterVoices’ Of Thee I Sing is recommended for ages 8 and up.
Group Sales prices are available beginning September 11 on all full-price tickets (15% discount on 10-24 tickets and 25% discount on 25+ tickets).
MasterVoices will also perform Of Thee I Sing at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post, Brookville, NY on November 4 at 8pm.
