Louisiana Purchase is a 1940 musical by Irving Berlin that is set in New Orleans, and satirizes then-Louisiana Governor Huey Long.
An honest U.S. senator travels to Louisiana to investigate corruption in the Louisiana Purchase Company; the company's lawyer attempts to divert him via the attentions of two beautiful women, but the senator maintains his integrity and ends up marrying one of them.
Musicals Tonight has revived 87 classic musicals since 1998. In 2004, Musicals Tonight was honored with an OBIE Award.
