The regional premiere of Joseph Vass’s song-filled reminiscence, directed by David Ellenstein, explores the creative life and unforgettable lyrics of Ira Gershwin. 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 flamboyant 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!
