Welcome aboard the S.S. American for a gloriously funny screwball comedy where anything goes! The zany passenger list includes disguised gangsters, tap-dancing sailors, high-kicking chorus girls, mismatched lovers, and women who could have slunk straight off the pages of Vogue in the 30s. The tune-filled, dance-peppered Cole Porter score is a bubbly delight of songs you love – “I Get a Kick out of You”, “It’s De-Lovely”, “All Through the Night”, “You’re the Top”, “Blow, Gabriel, Blow”, “Buddie Beware”, “Easy to Love”, and of course the title song. This wacky tale of mistaken identities on the high seas is full of raucous frivolity and is as snappy, effervescent, and fizzy as a bottle of champagne. Bon voyage!
All performances begin at 8:00 pm EXCEPT for ALL SUNDAY PERFORMANCES,
which are matinees and begin at 3:00 pm.
