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

Richard Carpenter is best-known as one half of the Carpenters, one of the best-selling musical groups of the 1970s. Both Richard and his sister Karen are alumni of California State University, Long Beach and the Carpenter Performing Arts Center is named in their honor.
Home for the Holidays is Musical Theatre West’s annual concert of music of the yuletide season and features live singers and dancers with an onstage orchestra and special guests. This year’s performance will continue the tradition that Musical Theatre West has established by bringing together many of their stars from past productions in an all-new celebration of the Holiday Season. In addition to Richard and Mindi Carpenter the cast will include Teri Bibb (She Loves Me_), Jill Townsend (_I Love A Piano and Thoroughly Modern Millie_), Robert Townsend (Thoroughly Modern Millie_), Tami Tappan Damiano (Never Gonna Dance, Guys and Dolls, and Crazy for You_), Kevin Earley (_Anything Goes, I Love A Piano and Guys and Dolls_) and Norman Large (_La Cage aux Folles).
Once again Lee Martino will serve as director/choreographer for Home for the Holidays. Ms Martino is another MTW favorite, having recently choreographed their productions of Never Gonna Dance, Guys and Dolls (for which she was nominated for a Los Angeles Ovation Award), La Cage aux Folles, and Mame. The production will feature a live onstage orchestra and a chorus of dancers and singers.
