WORDS AND MUSIC - BY GERSHWIN presents a series of six vignettes in the vein of the classic movie musical, in which four actors explore the beautiful song catalog of George Gershwin. A cruise ship, a tenement flat and the Broadway stage all create wonderful backdrops for this exquisite music, including favorites such as “Embraceable You,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
