ARTS Pick: I Love a Piano

A celebration of the music and lyrics of Irving Berlin, The Heritage Theatre Festival’s production of I Love a Piano follows a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to modern day. The story’s brought to life by Berlin classics such as “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “Anything You Can Do” and “God Bless America.” Hilarious and heartbreaking, Piano features an entire evening’s worth of songs by the legendary composer.

Through 8/1. $15-30, times vary. Helms Theater, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
