About the Musical:
A World Premiere Musical. Ira Gershwin (the lyricist brother of the famous Gershwin duo) takes us on a guided tour through some of the greatest songs ever written, featuring not only classics Ira created with his brother George, but also gems Ira crafted with composers Harold Arlen, Vernon Duke, Jerome Kern and Kurt Weill. Insights into the relatively private and understated life of Ira and tales of the more colorful George drive this
amazing and beautiful musical.
The Lyrics for "WORDS BY, Ira Gershwin and the Great American Songbook" were provided through special arrangement with the Ira and Leonore Gershwin Trusts and the Dubose and Dorothy Heyward Memorial Fund.
