Jack Moore, show builder extraordinaire, has crafted this story of George Gershwin’s remarkable life, as told through the eyes of his older brother, Ira and companion Kay Swift. It is a companion piece to our popular revue “A Party with Betty Comden and Adolph Green!”
It is a joyous romp through a musical history, highlighting the Gershwin Boy’s most popular films and musicals; including their first collaborative Broadway show in 1924. The Gershwin brothers wrote 22 shows and movies, at the pace of about two per year, as well as additional songs for revues and other occasions. Their last collaborative effort was the Great American Song Book standard, “Love Is Here to Stay” – A true classic that speaks so well to the enduring quality of their music and lyrics.
