Got Rhythm. The Gershwin Brothers
March 24 at Feinstein's/54 Below - BUY TICKETS
George and Ira are one of songwriting's most successful sibling partnerships. They wrote at their kitchen table into the wee hours of the dawning Jazz Age, and their home was the hub for Broadway glitterati. George and Fred Astaire met as hustling showbiz teenagers. Ethel Merman-a secretary in Queens-joined the family when the brothers gave her her first Broadway job. Harold Arlen, Yip Harburg and other pals all came a-calling. For Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley, the Gershwin songbook is among the most recorded in history. From "Fascinatin' Rhythm" to "Embraceable You" and "Someone to Watch Over Me," this show takes a joyful look at what happens when families are hotbeds of harmony. Featuring Klea Blackhurst, George Dvorsky, Nicolas King, and Rebecca Luker.
Since the 1960s, Andrew Lloyd Webber has added songs and stories to the musical theater lexicon that have changed the landscape of Broadway, the West End, and performance art indefinitely. With masterfully penned melodies and poignant adaptations, Webber's shows have become legends unto themselves. In 54 Sings Andrew Lloyd Webber, performers from Broadway shows, touring companies, and beyond will unite to showcase some of the most beloved of this composer's hits (The Phantom of the Opera, Jesus Christ Superstar) alongside some of his lesser-known works (Starlight Express, The Likes of Us). Performers include Zach Adkins (Anastasia), Michael Campayno (The Cher Show, Wicked), Olivia Chun (School of Rock), Quentin Earl Darrington (Once on This Island, CATS), Ali Ewoldt (The Phantom of the Opera), Heath Saunders (Alice by Heart, NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert"), Trent Saunders (Aladdin), and more.
