THE GHOST OF GERSHWINOpens Friday, May 9, 2014
Music by Wayland Pickard
Book by Doug Haverty
Lyrics by Laura Manning & Wayland Pickard
Directed by Jules Aaron
A struggling young composer is haunted by the music of George Gershwin ... until he meets the Ghost of Gershwin ... and his life is never the same again. Set in Brooklyn today, this romantic musical harkens back to the wacky world of the 1930s where the tenants of this apartment building are all involved in the arts somehow. People burst into song (and/or dance) at the drop of a hat. This world premiere musical features all original songs, which are a delightful homage to the legacy of American icons George & Ira Gershwin. How would you feel if you got to meet your idol and ask them any question you wanted? And what if the answer had nothing to do with the question, but changed your life anyway? You’d sing, wouldn’t you?
CAST: Jean Altadel, Emma-Jayne Appleyard, Kyle Bares, Andrew Bourgeois, Gregory Guy Gorden, Daniel Lench, Suzy London
