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

Great show! I was a little worried about a 4 person cast-but I have to say they did great. It was very entertaining and the second half stole the show! Im sure every show is a little different...you'll see why....but the one I saw had me crying of laughter. Needless to say, we had a great time!
Stationed during World War II on a South Pacific Army base, three soldiers find themselves giving the performance of their lives when a certain trio of singing sisters fail to show up for their USO gig. Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, The Hut Sut Song, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and A Slow Boat to China are just a few of the wonderful songs that highlight this valentine to the heroes of World War II.
Nick DeGruccio (recently awarded “Best Director” honors by the LA Drama Critic’s Circle for Zanna, Don’t!) will direct The Andrews Brothers, with choreography by Roger Castellano and musical direction by John Glaudini. Roger Bean, creator of The Andrews Brothers, will be in residence, overseeing the production. Stan Chandler, David Engel and Larry Raben, all original cast members of the hit Broadway show Forever Plaid, will star as the three hapless G.I.s, with Darcie Roberts (Broadway’s Curtains and Millie in the National Tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie) rounding out this all-star cast.
