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

Most people are familiar with Improv work via the (heavily edited)show "Who's line is it anyway?" This performance was similar, but without the benefit of editing.
The good: There were several huge laugh-out-loud moments. The performers are obviously talented.
The bad: They didn't seem to know when to end the musical sequences. Each one went on longer and un-funnier than they needed to be. The show also suffered from two other handicaps: The large theatre is ill suited for that type of interactive comedy, and perhaps most devastating, with the majority of the audience in the 60 year old and up range(season ticket holders I am guessing), the pop-culture comedy aimed at 20-40 year olds was largely met with silence.
We actually left at the intermission, after one excruciating hour of semi-funny. Though, as they are quick to point out, every show is different.
