It was a rare opportunity to see a Gershwin show from 1933. Although the material was dated there were a few famous songs and the cast performed them admirably.

Description

Created in 1933 (and revived to great acclaim Off-Broadway in 1998), As Thousands Cheer’s amusing gimmick was to turn newspaper headlines into deftly edited skits and musical numbers. This structure allowed Moss Hart to parody such wet-ink-fresh subjects as Gandhi, Joan Crawford, Josephine Baker and the new (!) Rockefeller Center. Irving Berlin’s score is unparalleled, launching such favorites as “Easter Parade,” “Supper Time,” “Heat Wave” and “Harlem on My Mind.”
