Hershey Felder's George Gershwin Alone, has been extended and will now close on Sunday, Jan. 11. "Directed by Joel Zwick, Felder takes on the role of the musician himself in George Gershwin Alone and exposes the dramatic path of one of America's most recognizable composers through dialogue, song and live piano performances of Gershwin's greatest works. The evening culminates in a sing along of audience favorites." The curtain rises at 7:30 pm.
