Summary, etc.:
A tuneful Irving Berlin musical that depicts the trials and triumphs of a veteran vaudeville family. Molly and Terry Donahue start out as a duo and keep adding kids to the act until they finally become The 5 Donahues. Their busy and tumultuous lives aren't always easy, but the Donahues have plenty of love to get them through the hard times and more than enough talent to keep them on top. Highlighted by one classic Irving Berlin song after another and an array of dazzling production numbers.
