I Love A Piano is the celebration of the music and lyrics of Irving Berlin.
It follows the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present. Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over sixty of Irving Berlin's most beloved songs, including classics such as Blue Skies, There's No Business Like Show Business, Puttin' on the Ritz, Cheek to Cheek, Always, How Deep is the Ocean, Anything You Can Do, God Bless America, and, of course, I Love a Piano. Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, rousing and reflective, I Love A Piano is a fitting tribute to the man Jerome Kern famously said had no place in American music - he is American music.
