Through March 24

The timeless music of George and Ira Gershwin plus an aviator, a Channel swimmer, exuberant dance numbers, sparkling costumes, romance, comedy, and America in 1927 equals My One and Only.

The plot is classic musical comedy: Captain Billy Buck Chandler, a barnstorming aviator, falls for Edythe Herbert, a former English Channel swimmer and the star of  Prince Nicolai Erraclyovitch Tchatchavadze's International Aquacade . Billy, who plans to be the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, hopes to win Edythe's hand by taking a crash course in sophistication at  Mr. Magix' Tonsorial and Sartorial Emporial . Billy's wisecracking female mechanic, Mickey, adds a bit of sass as a series of escapades and misadventures keep the potential lovers from finding happiness.

My One and Only features such Gershwin classics as "I Can't Be Bothered Now", "'S Wonderful", "Strike Up the Band", "Funny Face", "Nice Work If You Can Get It", and of course, "My One and Only".
