By From page B3 | October 05, 2012

Music fans are in for a lively song-and-dance journey through decades of American music at the Fallon House when Sierra Rep presents Irving Berlin’s “I Love a Piano.”

The captivating showcase celebrates the musical master’s legacy, from ragtime and dance halls to Hollywood and Broadway.

As Irving Berlin’s fellow music legend Jerome Kern famously said, “Irving Berlin has no place in American music – he is American music.”

A stand-out cast of six guest artists and a live band will sweep audiences through seven decades of Berlin’s masterpieces in a show that has charmed audiences across the country.

It plays at the Fallon House through Oct. 7.

Audiences will be amazed at the range of songs that kept this iconic composer at the forefront of American music decade after decade. Versatile performers will serve up dozens of Berlin’s ballads, dance numbers, love songs and novelty tunes with hits such as “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “God Bless America,” “Blue Skies,” “How Deep is the Ocean,” “Anything You Can Do,” and many more.

“I Love a Piano” plays at SRT’s Fallon House Theatre in Columbia State Historic Park.

Friday performances begin at 7 p.m. Saturday evening performances are at 8 and  Saturday and Sunday matinées begin at 2.

Ticket prices range from $24 to $30 depending on the day of the performance.
