Not very many songwriters have legitimate claim to being the actual greatest songwriter who ever lived, but Irving Berlin is one—and not just because he successfully stripped Jesus clean out of the songs most closely associated with the two most Christian holidays (“White Christmas” and “Easter Parade”). This solo performance chronicles the life and career of a man who escaped the pogroms of czarist Russia only to perfect the musical and verbal idiom that helped define the American century. (Bonus: This show promises to provide a welcome palate cleanser after Holiday Inn, the indescribably poor Berlin pastiche that recently befouled the Seattle stage, so that’s good, too.)
