The Presenters Dolan present Todd and Kelly Decker in They Can't Take That Away from Me: Songs and Stories of Ira Gershwin on Saturday, April 5, at 8 PM as part of the Gaslight Cabaret Festival. " The Gershwin brothers - George (music) and Ira (lyrics) - remade popular music in the 1920s and 1930s, writing songs for Broadway shows and Hollywood films that have stood the test of time. In their own time, these sons of Jewish immigrants helped define what the word "jazz" meant and charted a meteoric path to international stardom before George's untimely death at age thirty-eight. This show revisits the Gershwins' greatest songs - "The Man I Love," "Summertime," "I Got Rhythm," "S'Wonderful," the list goes on and on - and explores just what makes a Gershwin tune so irresistible." The performance takes place at the Gaslight Theater, 358 North Boyle. For more information: gaslightcabaretfestival.com.
