Billed as "a new old-fashioned musical," The Ghost of Gershwin is set in the Brooklyn of today but harkens back to the 1930s, a time when artsy tenants filled apartment buildings and anyone might burst into song or dance at the drop of a hat. A romantic new musical that features all original songs, The Ghost of Gershwin centers on a struggling young composer who's haunted by the music of George Gershwin -- until he encounters the famous composer's actual ghost, that is.

Before Stonewall, when “Are you a friend of Dorothy’s?” was code for “Are you gay?,” when you went to a psychiatrist to cure homosexuality — a man could marry, have kids and “prove” he was straight. This play affirms the bonds between human beings and takes us on an electrifying journey through time to show the struggle of a man born one generation too early. Sandy Sonnenberg lives a life of privilege which lulls him into believing he is untouchable. His extra-curricular affairs are buried – until he becomes entangled in a disastrous financial scheme which cuts the thin thread that ties him to a conventional life.
Please note: This production contains nudity.
