Ira Gershwin, the brilliant but self-effacing lyricist of the Gershwin phenomenon, is often overlooked in the adulation of George. Joined by guests Smith, Whitcomb and Sylvester, Dick Hyman will build this very special evening of Ira Gershwin gems around Ira’s fascinating, wonderfully humorous 1959 memoirs, Lyrics on Several Occasions, exploring the wordsmith’s not-with-George opus (including work with Kurt Weill, Yip Harburg, Harold Arlen and others) through words and music. Numbers include "Babbit And The Bromide", "The Saga of Jenny", "Could You Use Me?", "Tchaikowski And Other Russians", "I Can’t Get Started With You", "The Man That Got Away" and many others.
