George Gershwin (1898-1937), “America’s Composer,” synthesized jazz, classical music, opera, and ragtime into his unique style. His brother Ira (1896-1983), collaborated with George as a lyricist, and together they wrote some of the most memorable songs of the Twentieth Century. The Gershwins were born Yakov and Israel Gershowitz to Ukrainian Jews in New York City. George was a charismatic extrovert who became a huge celebrity. When he attended parties, he was always at the piano or dancing. He never married and supposedly said, ““Why should I limit myself to only one woman when I can date as many women as I want?” Ira was the polar opposite: shy, bookish, and a dedicated family man. Together they changed American popular music.

In this delightful hybrid of concert and cabaret, performers will weave the Gershwins’ fascinating life story with performances of some of their biggest know songs like I Got Rhythm, S’Wonderful, They Can’t Take That Away from Me, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,  A Foggy Day (in London Town) and more.
