Fall in love with the magic and soul of Ella Fitzgerald all over again with this musical celebration of one of the most beloved jazz vocalists of all time. Ella, her cousin and traveling companion Georgiana, and her manager Norman Granz tell the story of her life both backstage and onstage, from her humble beginnings to worldwide superstardom. Featuring some of Fitzgerald's most famous hits, including "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "How High the Moon" and "That Old Black Magic," this thrilling new musical weaves myth, memory and music to tell a poignant, yet ultimately uplifting, story. This production is conceived, directed and choreographed by the great Maurice Hines. Learn More

It starts slowly. But the one act, hour and a half, review deffinetly picks up steam, I knew surprisingly few of the musical numbers -- given that I know a fair amount of the American Musical songbook. But many of the "first-timers" (for me) were worth the listen. While there is no dialogue, there is more than music. Dancing, acrobatics and even fire eating create a Great Show. While the entire cast is accomplished, the sheer drive and the multipicity of talents of Andrew Sonntag was remarkable.
