The music was great, of course, but this could have been far more enjoyable as a single act with one or two less vignettes. The singing and dancing were okay (one of the singers was out of her league). The venue itself was nice and friendly, and...continued

The band was wonderful. The singing was well done. It felt very rushed and hyperactive to us. I love Gershwin music but did not like this presentation. Unfortunately, it was disappointing. bbmj

The seats were good. The music was OK. The dancing was very good. The arrangements of Gershwin's music was not so good. All in all a pleasant evening but not great.

Great little story weaving Gershwin's most popular songs. I would see it again.

Seats were good inside this medium size venue. It was like mini-shows of Gershwin music.

Great music and fun show. The singers, dancing and vignettes were done well and it was an enjoyable night. Anyone who enjoys Gershwin great words and music will have fun.

A fantastic performance. All five actors were terrific. Great music, beautiful voices, a wonderful six-piece band. I strongly recommend it.

Beautifully staged, lots of energy, super voices, perfect little script devices for stringing the songs together. Now, if only the tunes were good.... just kidding. Those Gershwin boys show real promise.

I loved many of the Gershwin songs they presented. The first skit was cute. Great band and pianist.

I love Gershwin music, but sorry to say, I did not love this show. The production just fell flat. The singing could have been better, and the vignettes were not enjoyable. For one of the few times in my life, I left at intermission.

Was hoping to hear most of my favorite Gershwin tunes and I did hear some, but because of the series of vignettes and how it was put together a ot of them were cut or intertwined with other tunes. It was creative how they put the songs together to...continued

S' Horrible. Honestly, I've never hated a musical so much in my life. I love musicals. I love Musical Theater West. I love Gershwin music. This was so awful I walked out after the second (of five) "mini musicals". Wanted to leave after the first,...continued

It was a very enjoyable show. The choreography was fun. The blond singer had a voice that rather grated on my husband's ear. When the 3 women sang together, they did not bring her up to their higher standards. Instead, they lowered to her...continued
