WORDS BY… Ira Gershwin and the Great American Songbook

Date: 
Friday, November 29, 2013 - 7:30pm to Sunday, December 29, 2013 - 7:30pm

Meet the man behind the lyrics you live. From “Our Love Is Here to Stay” to “Fascinating Rhythm” and “I Can’t Get Started,” songs and tales frame this glimpse into the more private and understated life of Ira, often overshadowed by his charismatic brother George. Joseph Vass, whose Ivey-award winning Soul of Gershwin show packed houses in 2011, has created another play with music to explore the creative process and showcase Ira’s collaborations with Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Vernon Duke, Kurt Weill—and brother George! The regional premiere by Joseph Vass; all song lyrics by Ira Gershwin; directed by David Ellenstein
