Following packed houses in Margate last year, Gordon Clarkson productions will be bringing popular show ‘I’ve Got Gershwin’ to the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs for a special Sunday Matinee on March 5.
Billed as a ‘slick, sophisticated theatre show featuring popular songs from The Great American Songbook’, it is performed by Gordon along with talented colleagues Stacy Golding, Frank Tucker and Alice Underdown with superb live music supplied by Paul Stewart on Piano and Steve Nicholls on Percussion.
Among the composers featured will be Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Harry Warren and Al Dubin and Gershwin.
In addition to songs such as ‘They can’t take that away from me’, ‘Summertime’, ‘Mack the Knife’, ‘At Last’, ‘You’re the Top’ and ‘Let there be Love’, the song with the longest title ever written : ‘How could you believe me when I said I loved you when you know I’ve been a liar all my life’ will be featured.
The show is designed very much in the style of a 1950’s night Club, so the guys stay in smart tuxedos throughout, whilst the ladies have complete costume changes with every entrance, creating a bit of ‘old school’ glamour.
Doors open at 2pm for curtain up at 2.30pm, and the show concludes by 5pm.
Tickets are £14 in advance, and £16 on the door, and can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0333 666 44 66, or online at : www.sarahthornetheatre.co.uk.
