About this show

Back by popular demand! This soulful play takes you back to early 1900s New York City— a creative melding of different cultures that created our distinctive "American Songbook." George Gershwin himself, joined by three stunning singers and a fantastic band, reveals the folk songs, blues, jazz, Yiddish theatre, cantor chants, and opera that fused into songs like "I Got Rhythm" and "Embraceable You." Created and written by Joseph Vass and directed by Peter Moore, this audience favorite features music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin with additional lyrics from Porgy and Bess by DuBose Heyward.
