A revival of the 1926 Gershwin musical featuring the adventures of the Duke of Durham and his sister, Lady Kay, English bootleggers in Prohibition Era America.

It is 1927 and Prohibition is making America thirsty and bootleggers wealthy. When Jimmy Winters arrives at his beach house with his new bride, he finds Shorty McGee there and mistakes him to be the butler. Shorty is actually guarding five hundred cases of booze stashed in Jimmy's cellar, but now he has no choice but to buttle. A telegram informs Jimmy he is still legally married to his first wife. The new bride flounces off to a hotel, leaving the way clear for Lady Katherine, who met Jimmy once and has never forgotten him.

Stage Buddy

“A delightful farce that has lost none of its charm…A truly entertaining night at the theater…Thinly connected plot points meant to serve as a backdrop for the songs...Energetically directed by Casey Colgan, ‘Oh, Kay!’ is a lovely production filled with memorable performances and songs that will have everyone humming and smiling on their way home."

NY Theatre Guide

"The 1926 musical comedy is looking positively frolicsome on the small Lion Theatre stage, and in production terms, shows a real freshening up of Musicals Tonight!’s resources. It’s the troupe’s liveliest effort in some time…Everybody up there looks to be having a wonderful time, reveling in the wispiness of plot and strength of Jazz Age melody, rhythm, and sassiness."

See it if you love the music of the Gershwins and like fun, light musical comedies.

Don't see it if you want to see a show with a deep plot.
