Thread Name: Gershwin musical Let 'em Eat Cake on BBC
Subject: Gershwin musical Let 'em Eat Cake on BBC
The musical satire LET 'EM EAT CAKE (1933) by George and Ira Gershwin, George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind has recently had its premiere UK production, and was broadcast on BBC3 radio today, Sep 26, 2009. This broadcast will be available there for 7 days. LET 'EM EAT CAKE was the sequel to the more popular OF THEE I SING (1931), with many of the same characters, but the situation has darkened considerably, with economic crises and the threat of dictatorship by "blue shirts" in the USA.
