The Actors’ Fund of America will present their highly anticipated 6th annual S.T.A.G.E. Too all-star ensemble in HOORAY FOR LOVE: A CELEBRATION OF THE MUSIC OF HAROLD ARLEN at the Beautiful Luckman Fine Arts Complex. This will be an unforgettable evening filled with the incredible music of Harold Arlen, one of our most prolific composers, whose songs include OVER THE RAINBOW, THE MAN THAT GOT AWAY, STORMY WEATHER, THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC, COME RAIN OR COME SHINE, GET HAPPY, ANYPLACE I HANG MY HAT IS HOME, PAPER MOON and so many more!

With over 400 songs to his credit, Harold Arlen quietly accumulated one of the most impressive catalogs in the history of American popular song, not merely lucrative Hit Parade material (plenty of those), but evergreens like “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” “I Love A Parade” “I’ve Got the World On A String,” “I’ve Got A Right To Sing The Blues,” “It’s Only A Paper Moon,” and “Let’s Fall in Love,” are just some of the standards that live on today and have distinguished Harold Arlen as one of the Great American Composers of the 20th Century. Arlen’s compositions have long outlived their original Broadway shows and films for studios like Warners and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer including hits like “That Old Black Magic,” “Stormy Weather,” “A Star is Born,” and his song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” he wrote for The Wizard of Oz won the Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song.

An incredible cast, still in formation, will include Ian Abercrombie, Paul Ainsley, Susan Anton, Sam Arlen, Mary Jo Catlett, Alan Cumming, Loretta Devine, Kevin Early, David Engel, John Glover, Ilene Graff, Sam Harris, Mimi Hines, Jane A. Johnston, Melissa Manchester, Rod McKuen, Sharon Mcnight, Barbara Morrison, Kevin Odekirk, Tonya Pinkins, Henry Polic II, Billy Porter, Alice Ripley, Kevin Spirtas, Sally Struthers, Lillias White, Larry Rabbet, Jomarie Wardand and Wesla Whitfield! (subject to chage without notice.)

There will be a silent auction in the lobby of theatrical memorabilia that will be open until the end of intermission.
