CRAZY for Gershwin - a performance of music, song and dance celebrating the much-admired works of George Gershwin - is coming to the Cliffs Pavilion.

Gershwin is often regarded as the greatest of the popular music composers and recognised for bringing the jazz style to the piano concerto.

The show will contain classic orchestral compositions alongside a selection of show-stopping numbers written in collaboration with his lyricist brother, Ira.

One of the most talented of the first generation of musical theatre composers, Gershwin successfully bridged the gap between concert hall and Broadway.

This performance from the treasured Gershwin songbook will include: Rhapsody in Blue, Shall We Dance, Lady Be Good, But Not For Me, S’Wonderful, I Got Rhythm, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Swanee, The Man I Love, Strike Up the Band, A Foggy Day In London Town and Summertime.

Expect Broadway glamour and toe-tapping tunes in an all-Gershwin extravaganza.

Crazy for Gershwin features Viv McLean - piano; Katie Birtill - soprano; Rodney Earl Clarke - baritone and Richard Balcombe - conductor with a glamorous ballroom dancing duo and two sensational tap dancers.

The show comes to the Southend theatre in Station Road, on Saturday 14 April at 8pm.
