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 song-and-dance production was a creative and entertaining adaptation of the children's book. There are several plot and character elaborations added to the simple story line. Our kids (<5 years old) loved it. It also maintained the interests of the adults in our party.
Quotes & Highlights
See a video preview of Strega Nona on YouTube.
Based on the award-winning and much-loved children’s book by Tomie dePaola, Strega Nona comes to the stage in the musical tale of a kindly witch who cures the ills of her tiny Italian village. When she hires Big Anthony to help out with chores, Strega Nona warns him not to mess with her magical pasta pot, but he touches it anyway. When Anthony is to his ears in pasta (literally), can Strega Nona save the day?
