San Diego – The Tony Award®-winning Old Globe hosts its 22nd annual Gala on Saturday, September 16, in celebration of its Season 2006/2007 opener: Hershey Felder’s George Gershwin Alone.

A celebrated work about the legendary American composer, George Gershwin Alone is a delightful “play with music” by actor, playwright and Steinway concert artist Hershey Felder. The show incorporates the Gershwins' best-known songs, from The Man I Love and Someone to Watch Over Me, through passages and songs from An American in Paris and Porgy and Bess, to a complete performance of Rhapsody in Blue. The first popular composer to use jazz as the foremost musical element in the serious concert hall, Gershwin absorbed the musical styles, rhythms and sophistication of the American spirit and created a musical language that made its mark on both classical and popular music throughout the world. Hershey Felder brings to life the spirit and talent of the legendary composer and pianist, leading audiences through the fascinating rhythms of Gershwin’s legendary songbook, while telling the tale of his tragically short life.
