Audiences Roared!!

Three master-class vocalists and a matchless onstage band wowed audiences with klezmer and jazz alike in this fascinating 23-song theatrical concert. Familiar all-time Gershwin classics, cleverly bundled with musical surprises, triggered resounding “aah’s” that rippled from front row to back of the house bringing theatergoers—young and old—to their feet.

George Gershwin as narrator and storyteller takes audiences on a compelling musical journey that transports them back to his world: New York City in a burgeoning new century bustling with diverse cultural influences and seemingly disparate musical genres—Yiddish theater and Jewish liturgical melodies... popular tunes... folk songs… blues and jazz... opera… all serendipitously at hand to stoke his musical genius... the true soul of George Gershwin.
