Gershwin revue to debut at CLO Cabaret

| Thursday, March 11, 2010

A new musical tribute to the Gershwin brothers will have its world premiere at the CLO Cabaret in June.

"'S Wonderful" will feature nearly 30 classic hits such as "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "Shall We Dance," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Rhapsody in Blue" as it follows world events and the careers and impact of George and Ira Gershwin from New York City in 1916 to Paris in the 1930s, Hollywood in the 1940s and New Orleans in the 1950s.

Ray Roderick will direct the five mini-musicals that make up this all-singing, all-dancing revue, which Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera is producing in partnership with Maximum Entertainment Productions, and producers Todd Gershwin, great-nephew of George and Ira Gershwin, and Daniel Chilewich of Premiere Media,

The show will run June 17 through Sept. 29 at the CLO Cabaret, 655 Penn Ave., Downtown. Individual tickets, $34.50 to $44.50, go on sale March 29.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
