NEW BRUNSWICK—State Theatre will present “‘S Wonderful – The New Gershwin Musical” on Sunday, Oct. 30 at 3 p.m. “‘S Wonderful” is an all singing, all dancing, musical revue that celebrates the genius of George and Ira Gershwin. Tickets range from $25-45.
Performed with a live orchestra, “‘S Wonderful” features over 40 timeless classics including: “Rhapsody in Blue,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “Nice Work if You Can Get it,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and more. Under the direction of Ray Roderick, musical direction of Richard Hip-Flores, and choreography of Vince Pesce, the talented cast of five triple-threat singer/dancer/actors will bring the music of the Gershwin brothers to life.
The cast includes New Jersey native and Edison resident, Kimberly Thomas; Jake Delaney; Katie Mitchell; Cassandra Nuss; and Matthew Rickard.
Incorporating five mini-musicals inspired by the real events occurring in and around the lives of the Gershwin brothers, this new musical illustrates their impact on the world then and now. 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. Like a Technicolor® movie musical, “‘S Wonderful” paints a picture of nostalgia and entertainment while paying tribute to the incomparable songbook of George and Ira Gershwin.
The tour is presented by Maximum Entertainment Productions and producers Todd Gershwin and Dan Chilewich of Premiere Media. The Gershwin families have authorized the use of the Gershwin songbook, making “‘S Wonderful” a brand new, all-inclusive Gershwin musical.
