From February 15th through February 18th, the Theatre Department will be performing Can't Help Lovin': A Music Review, which features the music of Jerome Kern. Kern is one of the most important American composers of the 20th century and wrote a vast number of songs that have been used in over a hundred stage productions. The most famous musical that features Kern's work is Showboat, but his songs are also featured in several other musicals that were hits during their time. Some of the more popular songs he composed include the following: "The Way You Look Tonight," "Long Ago (and Far Away)," "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man," "Ol' Man River," and "A fine Romance."

Can't Help Lovin': A Music Review is directed by Laura Avery. This sounds like a perfectly romantic show to go to during the week of Valentine's Day!
