University of Southern Maine School of Music presents OF THEE I SING
by BWW News Desk - Oct 25, 2017

This all-American political satire focuses on the election campaign and Presidency of John P. Wintergreen, whose party, lacking a viable platform, runs on love. With politicians skewered right and left, Of Thee I Sing is an hilarious and timeless send-up of national institutions that is as relevant as ever, (It even features its own impeachment proceedings!). In 1932, this show was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama! Of Thee I Sing first appeared on Broadway at The Music Box Theater, directed by George S. Kaufman. We are presenting this as a semi-staged concert version featuring a 10-piece orchestra led by Music Director Kellie Moody.

BWW Review: Bryce Pinkham and Denee Benton Mix Love and Politics in MasterVoices' OF THEE I SING
by Michael Dale - Nov 7, 2017

Back in 1931, when the firm Kaufman, Ryskind, Gershwin & Gershwin had the novel idea to infuse that stodgy old music/theatre entertainment, the Broadway operetta, with the jauntiness of showtune and a chaotic mixture of comedic highbrow and lowbrow to tell the tale of an unqualified, but charismatic American politician who rides a wave of popular support for his questionable platform to the United States presidency, musical comedies typically employed a bit more on-stage and front-of-stage talent than audiences are accustomed to seeing nowadays.
