I LOVE A PIANO is an enchanting new musical journey spanning seven decades of American history as seen through the perceptive and hopeful eyes of Irving Berlin—a man whom Jerome Kern described by saying "Irving Berlin has no place in American music...He is American Music!"
Using 64 of Berlin’s enduring and popular favorites, I LOVE A PIANO captures the spirit of America from the Ragtime rhythms of the early 20th century through the swinging sophistication of the 1920s and 30s. From the sentimental songs that inspired a nation during two World Wars to the innocent optimism of the 1950’s. Timeless classics, such as "White Christmas,"God Bless America,"Puttin’ On The Ritz," and "There’s No Business Like Show Business," do more than define the music of a generation, they define the music of our country.

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. Most people have known and have had some kind of a relationship with a piano in their lifetime. A piano, however, rarely remains in one place for seventy years. It moves. It sees a lot. It brings people together during times in their lives when they are the happiest, saddest, proudest, loneliest, closest, most romantic. This is the story of one piano’s experience; of the people it touches; of the lives it shares.
I LOVE A PIANO is a tribute to the man, who, according to Jerome Kern, "...has no place in American music. He is American music.”

I LOVE A PIANO requires 6 triple-threat performers. While the cast retain their identities and names throughout the show, they play different characters in different time periods.
I LOVE A PIANO requires a unit set, with one main prop - an early 20th century piano. The original production of the show relied heavily on the use of projections to set the scenes though subsequent productions have been equally effective without the use of slides.
