How is it that a man with limited formal and musical education, and inability to write in any key except F# without the aid of a transposing piano, was able to create some of the most versatile and memorable music the world has ever known? Find out how these musical masterpieces were created in this sweet, romantic, semi-autobiographical musical featuring the works of Irving Berlin. The show features ten singers, a cookin’ onstage band and 46 songs, including “What’ll I Do?,” “Blue Skies,” “Always,” “Cheek to Cheek,” ”I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” “Always,” “Heat Wave” and many more! Featuring the talented Susannah Mars and Merideth Kaye Clark.

  • The Melody Lingers On is the only musical devoted to Berlin that has been approved by his estate, an understandable decision because the show is an unabashed love letter.
