The Encores! season begins with this Irving Berlin-scored comedy

Why See Call Me Madam?

MusicalsOff Broadway Shows

Score By Irving Berlin

Every year, the New York City Center show some love to some underappreciated musical gems with Encores!, a series of three strictly-limited revivals of Broadway shows that deserve a reappraisal.

Opening the 2019 season is Call Me Madam. Featuring music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, this peppy show was something of a blockbuster in its day, opening in 1950 to record advance sales, and was subsequently adapted for the silver screen. The show follows the fortunes of socialite Sally Adams, who is appointed US ambassador to a fictional European country named Lichtenburg. Featuring the Berlin numbers 'It's a Lovely Day Today' and 'You're Just in Love', Madam is a witty trifle which provided plenty of killer lines for its original star Ethel Merman.
