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 event had a special draw for me. My fourteen year old Grandson plays trumpet in his high school marching band and obviously enjoys it as he does it with so much style. I knew that he might not know anything about the instruments history....and I certainly didn't. I couldn't purchase the three tickets fast enough....one for Cody, his mother and myself. Not only were we given the history of all the wind instruments but the wonderful musicians in this group of five played the music of the time period on those instruments!
Thank you Goldstar for making this opportunity for learning and enjoying great music available to us.
