For our 54th Kritzerland show, we are thrilled to present a tribute to one of the greatest musical theater and Great American Songbook composers in history - Jerome Kern. Jerome Kern's melodies are amongst the most glorious ever written - add to that the brilliant lyricists he worked with, from Oscar Hammerstein, Jr. to Dorothy Fields to Otto Harbach to Johnny Mercer to Ira Gershwin, and the result is heavenly musical magic. From shows like Showboat, Very Warm for May, Leave It to Jane, Roberta, The Cat and the Fiddle, Music in the Air, to movie musicals like Swing Time, You Were Never Lovelier, Cover Girl and his final film, Centennial Summer (MGM also made a musical about his life, Till the Clouds Roll By), Kern's contributions to those shows resulted in some of the most beloved songs ever written: "The Way You Look Tonight," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "Long Ago and Far Away," "All The Things You Are," "I've Told Ev'ry Little Star," "A Fine Romance," "I Won't Dance," "Can't Help Lovin' That Man of Mine," "Make Believe," "Yesterdays," and so many more. We've assembled a great cast and are always delighted to have the wonderful Andrea Marcovicci with us - she is a particularly huge fan of Jerome Kern, but then again, who isn't? So join host and producer Bruce Kimmel for this tuneful evening of Kern songs, both well known and, as always at Kritzerland, unknown.
