Broadway Playhouse: George & Ira Gershwin

Sunday, January 22, 2017  |  11:00am


Broadway Playhouse introduces kids age 4-11 to classic Broadway musicals with songs, stories, sing-alongs and audience participation games in which children in the audience are chosen to join the cast on stage.

The Gershwin brothers changed the world of theater and music. The songwriting team whose voice has come to be synonymous with the Jazz Age wrote many classics of the American Songbook that we’re still all singing today. They made it big on Broadway with hits like Lady, Be Good (1924), Porgy and Bess (1934) and Of Thee I Sing (1931) – the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. An American in Paris (1928), currently running on Broadway, features classic songs including “I Got Rhythm” and “Our Love Is Here to Stay.” Some kids will be invited on stage to play games and join the fun.
