Upcoming Performances

Let ‘Em Eat Cake

By George & Ira Gershwin and Book by George S. Kaufman & Morrie Ryskind

November 21 at 7:00PM | Carnegie Hall

After the resounding success of their 1931 hit, Of Thee I Sing (performed by MasterVoices in 2017), the Gershwins re-teamed with librettists George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind for this madcap and blisteringly dark sequel. Let ‘Em Eat Cake picks up with the same motley crew, four years later – President Wintergreen has lost re-election, stages a military coup, fires the Supreme Court, and paints the White House blue.

Iron & Coal

January 11 at 8:00PM
