WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Andrea Marcovicci hosts an evening of tender and funny songs created when German immigrant composer Kurt Weill (1900-1950) teamed up with great American lyricists and poets like Alan Jay Lerner, Ira Gershwin, Ogden Nash and Langston Hughes. The songs that Weill wrote with these collaborators ranged from sweeping romantic melodies to jaunty comic tunes to stately anthems. Among the many songs on the program are "It Never Was You" and "September Song," from Knickerbocker Holiday with lyrics by Maxwell Anderson, and "My Ship" from Lady in the Dark with lyrics by Ira Gershwin.
