This chapter presents the text of Arthur Ruhl's review of George Gershwin's Broadway musical comedy satire Of Thee I Sing, which was published in the December 28, 1931 issue of New York Herald Tribune. Ruhl notes that the musical offered more than a conventional musical comedy and it was received by the audience with more than routine first-night enthusiasm. He also provides a detailed description of every act and lauded the role of Ira Gershwin, Morrie Ryskind, and George S. Kaufman to the success of the show.
