Five mini-musicals take you on a thrilling ride through the songs that made the Gershwin brothers the most successful songwriting team in musical history in 'S Wonderful. This musical features more than 40 of the Gershwins' classic hits, including "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "Shall We Dance," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Rhapsody in Blue." A series of charming vignettes, set around the globe between 1924 and the present, serve as the backdrops for this spirited homage to the golden age of musical theater. It's nostalgic, it's exciting -- it's 'S Wonderful. Learn More

Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
Based on the Mark Twain novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court
First mounted in 1927, then revived in 1943, “A Connecticut Yankee” contains the last song ever written by Rodgers & Hart (the deadly funny “To Keep My Love Alive”). It’s the story of Martin, a Connecticut resident, who’s knocked out and sent back in time to Camelot when his fiancée hits him on the head with a champagne bottle. After outwitting a sorceress and winning his true bride, Martin returns to the 20th century for a happy ending, but not before singing such rousing classics as “My Heart Stood Still” and “Thou Swell”. “So many fetching songs”, said Alexander Woolcott.
