Orchestrations and Sound Design by Scott Elmegreen

‘S Wonderful: The New Gershwin musical, is an all singing, all dancing musical revue, featuring over 42 songs by the beloved Gershwin Brothers, including, “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “Love is Here to Stay” and more. The melodies flow through five mini-musicals inspired by stories of young love, beginning in 1920s New York City, moving to Paris in the 1930s, Hollywood in the ‘40s, New Orleans in the 1950s and ending in the present day. ‘S Wonderful takes you on a nostalgic ride that has been called “a gem for Gershwin lovers, young and old.”

“It begins with those thrilling, trilling first notes – the clarinet solo – of ‘Rhapsody in Blue.” … Mr. Roderick could not have chosen a better mood setter for an evening of George and Ira Gershwin’s grand, glorious 20th-century music.” -Anita Gates, The New York Times

“If you like the Gershwins’ music, you’re going to love “‘S Wonderful.” – Alice T. Carter, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
