Featuring the songs I’m Always Chasing Rainbows, Alice Blue Gown and You Made Me Love You, IRENE focuses on an immigrant shop assistant, Irene O’Dare, who is introduced to Long Island’s high society when she is hired by one of its leading grande dames to help redecorate her home.  A smash hit in 1919 Irene ran for 675 performances and has been revived many times including in 1971 with Debbie Reynolds.
