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

Very enjoyable. The Carpenter Center is a fantastic location, easy access and parking and a wonderful staff! Picking up the tickets couldn't have been easier, and the reminders from Goldstar were very helpful.
The ballet was excellent! A wonderful blend of talented dancing with a fun and energetic performance, including fun props, that my daughter (6 yrs) was really able to enjoy. Just when she was getting "squirmy" the performance would include something fun and interesting again (like her favorite part the "human alphabet").
So in summary... great location, great facility, terrific seats, and a wonderful performance!! A truly terrific afternoon! Thank you!!
Quotes & Highlights
“The New York Theatre Ballet…turned out to be one of those shows that are so good they seem worth the price of the entire series of five attractions.” —Sacramento Bee
This new one-hour rollicking romp takes the whole family on an antic-filled journey — simple enough for small children, sophisticated enough for the most discerning adult. Inspired by classic nursery rhymes, this tongue-in-cheek, madcap ballet features such beloved characters as Jack and Jill, Miss Muffet, Jack Sprat and his plump wife, Old King Cole, and The Three Blind Mice.
Set design is by Derek Stenborg and costumes are by Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the Metropolitan Opera’s resident costume designer. The music, an original work created for this production, is composed by Vladimir Shinov.
Created by Keith Michael, choreographer of NYTB’s delightful, high-spirited Alice-in-Wonderland Follies.
