The March installment of the series will reprise, for one night only, his MAC Award-nominated show from 2016, ME AND THE GERSHTWINS. Join him as he teams up with twin brothers Adam and Matt Podd for a musical romp through the music of two other brothers: George and Ira Gershwin. The twins will astonish you with their multi-instrumental talents and their arrangements that are at once innovative, and classic. Cabaret Scenes said of the show's debut in 2016, "Beautiful singing by Stearns Matthews and terrific musicianship by Adam & Matt Podd honor the Gershwin legacy."

Bricusse's extensive catalog includes Stop the World-I Want to Get Off, The Roar of the Greasepaint-The Smell of the Crowd, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Jekyll & Hyde. In addition to Bricusse's many collaborations with composer Anthony Newley, Matthews will feature songs on which Bricusse collaborated with other composers, including Henry Mancini, John Barry, and Cyril Ornadel. Matthews will be joined by longtime friend and collaborator, pianist Warren Helms.
