Plan to head to ‘S Wonderful: The New Gershwin Musical now until September, presented by Pittsburgh’s CLO Cabaret. This is an all-singing, all-dancing celebration of the brilliant and breathtaking music and lyrics of brothers George and Ira Gershwin.
Five mini-musicals take audiences on a ride to the different places, times and styles that made the Gershwin brothers the most successful songwriting team in musical history. First it’s New York City in 1916 and Paris in the 1930s, followed by Hollywood in the ’40s and New Orleans in the ’50s. ’S Wonderful pays a nostalgic tribute to the incomparable songbook of George and Ira Gershwin, featuring nearly 30 classic hits such as “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “Shall We Dance,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “Rhapsody in Blue.”
