DESCRIPTION Fascinatin’ Gershwin is a live 2-hour show about the life and music of one of America’s greatest composers, George Gershwin. Smartly led by actor and pianist Karl Modery, Fascinatin’ Gershwin brings to life the indelible story of George Gershwin…from his ragtime start in Tin Pan Alley to the classical compositions we know and love today. The name of the surprise singer has not been revealed, but there’s more…
Modery’s storytelling is compelling as the story itself. He visually and musically intertwines a complex yet effortless montage of music, storytelling, and video that catapults the audience back in time to Gershwin’s early days…his inspirations, influences, ups and downs. Within moments, we are transposed to New York City in the 1930s and wish it would never end. When the show is over, and the lights come on, many just sit in reflection - like watching credits on the big screen - digesting the surreality of it all.
Fascinatin’ Gershwin brings to all ages an opportunity to learn, understand, and revel in a time of chaos and artistic melody. Who can forget the timeless Rhapsody in Blue? Though George Gerschwin died at the age of 38, his legacy lives on through a compelling and intimate show that you don’t want to miss.
