With politicians skewered right and left, including a Vice President who wanders the White House unrecognized by his own staff, Of Thee I Sing is a hilarious and timeless send-up of national institutions that is as relevant as ever. The extensive hit-filled score makes Of Thee I Sing one of George and Ira Gershwin’s finest creations and their longest running musical during George Gershwin’s lifetime. Of Thee I Sing will be Lyric Stage’s first Gershwin musical.

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,” promising that if elected he will marry the winner of an Atlantic City beauty pageant. When he falls for Mary Turner, a campaign secretary who bakes a mean corn muffin, instead of Diana Deveraux, the fairest flower of the South and winner of the pageant, trouble begins.
