George & Ira Gershwin, Guy Bolton & Fred Thompson, 1924
Lady, Be Good!
Sat, Oct 6, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
The show that made Fred and Adele Astaire stars, featured the great Cliff “Ukulele Ike” Edwards, and established the Gershwin brothers as a major force on Broadway, Lady, Be Good! is a zany, fast-paced tale of romance and money, with all the trials and tribulations possible on the path to true love and financial bliss…complete with mistaken identities (of course!), a pair of handcuffs (a must!), a ukulele-playing college “sheik” (hey, it’s the 1920s!), and a classic grand finale multiple betrothal (doh)!
This up-beat and wonderfully lyrical musical comedy has some of the Gershwins’ best loved songs, including “Fascinating Rhythm”, “Little Jazz Bird”, “I’d Rather Charleston”, “The Half Of It, Dearie, Blues”, and, of course, “Oh, Lady, Be Good”, as well as delightful hidden treasures such as “Hang On To Me”, “We’re Here Because”, “So Am I” and “Swiss Miss”.
