The production runs from February 6 through 10. According to Call Me Madam's website, this is the second time in Encores! history that they are reviving one of their own revivals. Call Me Madam was the highlight of the second season of Encores! and was the show that put the series on the map. Irving Berlin wrote the musical score to accompany the book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. Call Me Madam centers around an ambassador to the fictional European nation of Lichtenberg and features songs such as “It’s a Lovely Day Today" and “You’re Just in Love.”
