ALSO STARRING in both shows will be the stunning, glimmering blue art deco Steinway & Sons piano RHAPSODY. Designed by artist Frank Pollaro and inspired by legendary Steinway artist George Gershwin (CRAZY FOR YOU), this piano is a must see for any music enthusiast.
Crafted in tribute to the 100th anniversary of Gershwin's birth, the piano is dyed in brilliant blue and over 400 mother-of-pearl stars have been hand cut into the piano and inlaid in random fashion. The plate is gilded in silver to give the impression that the piano is emanating light when it is opened.
Other distinctive features found on the piano are the first two measures of "Rhapsody in Blue" indelibly imprinted on the plate; the music rack carved into the silhouette of the Manhattan skyline on the backdrop of a New York City night sky mirrored on the Hudson River; the legs decorated with mother of pearl spotlights shining into the deep blue night sky in celebration of Broadway's exciting grand openings.
See it in person now at the Green Room Piano Bar and Lounge and on stage at the John W. Engeman Theater at Northport a the BROADWAY CONCERT SERIES!
