We are huge fans of Gershwin music and have seen this show twice. Don't hesitate---see its stellar cast in a superb production.

5.0 star rating Claudette Moniz from Providence, Rhode Island


One of the best shows I have seen recently at PPAC. The dancing is unbelievable. Don't know how they do two of these shows in one day on the weekend. It has to be exhausting. The singing was also very enjoyable and the scenery was beautiful. Fabulous cast, great job. Totally recommend this show.

A brilliant piece of work. The dancing and staging are spectacular. Do not miss this underrated musica/ballet.

It starts with the cast and the cast was amazing. Good score, wonderful dancers. Had an old Broadway feel with a fresh look.

5.0 star rating Carl Olson from Detroit, Michigan


Excellent! The Detroit Opera House is a great venue. The cast was absolutely wonderful. Not one mistake was apparent.

5.0 star rating Valerie from Costa Mesa, California


The combination of dance, music, comedy, story of love along with great set design and transformation was fabulous. Sara Esty who has a lead role as Lise is both graceful and energising ultimately stealing the show with her talent for both ballet and singing. The big tap-dancing scene done by the three male leads along with a full stage of dancers exceeded my expectations. We had Orchestral Terrace seats that were optimal for viewing the entire stage. I loved it so much I would go again!
