ALEXANDER’S RAGTIME BAND
This grand musical “which stirs and thrills” (Variety) is a nostalgic tribute to Irving Berlin, one of America’s greatest composers. Academy Award Winner of 1938, the wonderful all-star cast performs over two dozen Berlin classics.
Starring Tyrone Power, Alice Faye, Don Ameche, Ethel Merman and Jack Haley
Alexander’s Ragtime Band and ingenue Stella Kirby (FAYE) are forced to team up when an audition mix-up lands them a job together. Though Stella and band leader Alexander (POWER) lock horns, they put their differences aside at the urging of Charlie Dwyer (AMECHE), a band member who is romancing Stella. But Charlie’s truce backfires when Alexander and Stella fall in love, triggering a nearly 30-year rivalry for her affection. Also starring ETHEL MERMAN and JACK HALEY, this is a musical treat not to be missed!
