About this show

An international hit makes its Arizona premiere when multi-talented Hershey Felder kicks off ATC's season with his widely-acclaimed musical play. Evoking Gershwin's famous radio broadcasts of the 1930s, George Gershwin Alone explores the life, talent and spirit of the legendary composer - from his early days as an audacious Tin Pan Alley novice, to his breakthrough success with Rhapsody in Blue, to fame and fortune as a songwriter during the glamorous era of the 1930s Broadway and Hollywood, and finally to the deeply felt social consciousness if masterpieces like Porgy and Bess. A Steinway Concert Artist, actor and playwright, Hershey Felder is the only individual to whom the Gershwin heirs have granted permission to create the role of George Gershwin on stage. Joel Zwick directs.
