Face the Music musical (1932)

Ingenious Irving Berlin wrote this music and lyrics & the libretto was performed by Moss Hart. In the production of musical, a title have had several options, including Nickels & Dimes, but then it was called with neutral name, Face The Music, so not to say aloud of Great Depression.

Its pre-Broadway run was held in Philadelphia in 1932, and then at the beginning of the same year, a musical without any significant changes was moved to New Amsterdam Theatre. Having only 165 hits, it was closed in the summer of the same year. In contains a story of its own time and shall not be judged severely, that during the Great Depression it lasted for six months only – in fact, many modern histrionics run less than this figure, so it means that it was good.

After re-opening, the musical has held for 31 shows, in the 44th Street Theatre, which was demolished in 1945. Actors: M. Boland, The Albertina Rasch Dancers, M. Adams, T. Arace, C. Lawrence, K. Carrington, R. E. Keane.

Its subsequent production was in 1997, for 2 weeks in San Francisco & in 2002 in New York. In the Big Apple musical returned again in 2007 to do only a few shows with such actors: M. Patterson, J. Kaye, J. Denman, L. Wilkof, E. Korbich & W. Bobbie.

In 2015, its resurrection took place again in the summer, at 1 month, in Rose & Crown Theatre in the Great Britain, where the director was Brendan Matthew.
