A classic Gershwin musical is getting ready for a revival. Oh Kay! is a 1920’s show based on a bootlegger in Prohibition America in the ’20’s. Harry Connick Jr. is set to star in the revival. Oh Kay! will preview in Boston in December of 2008 before heading to New York City in the Spring of 2009.
There is still some discussion regarding the show’s name. Possible alternate titles include ‘Heaven on Earth’ and ‘They All Laughed’.
Stay tuned for information on Oh Kay! tickets and show dates.
