Theatre of the Ridiculous and Absurd presents: IRVING BERLIN'S MUSIC BOX REVUE 1921
The Great America Revues: How Ziegfeld Follies, Music Box Revues, George White Scandals, The Passing Shows and their rivals remade Broadway.
The Jazz Age brought us new sounds and styles of music, dance, and theatre to the world of performance. This October 12-14, Theatre of the Ridiculous and Absurd brings you the first ever fully staged historical revival of IRVING BERLIN'S MUSIC BOX REVUE 1921. After Berlin left the Ziegfeld Follies he built The Music Box Theatre for his revolutionary music, dance, and skits celebrating the post WW1 world.
Based on the original piano score, this production is a fully realized combination of all aspects of Irving Berlin's genius. Jerome Kern said, “Irving Berlin has no place in American Music. He is American Music." Newly orchestrated for simple pit orchestra, along with a complex piano score denoting Berlin's distinctive style, the production features a talented cast of regional performers, choreographers, and musicians.
Look toward to this historical theatric gem presented this October 12-14 at 7:30 pm at the Ives Auditorium in the Minnesota Masonic Heritage Center in Bloomington.
A portion of net proceeds will be going to meals programs for people living with chronic illness, and Youth Link for homeless youths
