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

It was an awesome performance. I loved the artistic integrity and how the dancers interpreted movement to convey emotions. Also, I enjoyed their use of hip hop choreography for non-hip hop related songs, such as Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. :)
