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

A rare opportunity to see a tremendous show that is performed only infrequently (this was the West Coast premiere!), with an accomplished cast. The fact that it was free was an added bonus - I would have paid big money to see this one!

Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Musical Theatre West is delighted to present Musical Theatre Guild’s production, offering Los Angeles its first look at Ahrens & Flaherty’s recent gem about the journey of self-discovery and acceptance. Based on the Albert Finny film, this musical version premiered at Lincoln Center in 2002. It tells the heartwarming story of Alfie, a Dublin bus conductor and director of the local community theatre. Alfie’s passengers are also his performers and, through his eyes, come to experience the power that theatre has to transform their lives.
