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

This was fantastic - as good as when I saw it on TV around twenty years ago! David Birney wrote the screenplay - he doesn't seem to age.
For those who haven't seen it, it begins with PASSIONATE love poems, then segues (sp?) into the main story.
The acting of both co-stars was tremendous, and the (minimal) set was perfect. I could hear almost all the dialogue (which is rare for me).
Quotes & Highlights
- *"Eendearing… a reminder of Twain’s storytelling genius and how much fun it can be… flavorful as apple cider, pungent, ironic." -Los Angeles Times
“Sharp and resourceful… played with freshness and theatricality…charming.” __-Variety__
The delicious and timeless wit of humorist Mark Twain is illuminated in David Birney’s stage adaptation, which won praise from L.A. to New York for Twain’s tender, knowing, and terrifically witty observations on the nature of men, women and love. A tour-de-force performance by Birney and co-star Madylon Brans!
