Fascinating Rhythm: A Gershwin Celebration
Jan. 30 – Feb. 16, 2014
Tickets go on sale: Nov. 26, 2013
Music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin, conceived by Mark Adams
Following the success of our "My Funny Valentine" revue, we have created a totally original, world premiere celebration of the glorious music of George and Ira Gershwin. "Fascinating Rhythm" tells a comical backstage love story filled with laughs, romance, dazzling dance numbers and soaring melodies. It features over two dozen Gershwin standards from the Great American Songbook, such as "Someone To Watch Over Me," "Embraceable You," "Nice Work If You Can Get It," "I Got Rhythm," "Our Love is Here to Stay," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "I've Got a Crush on You" and many more!
