The pair meet interesting people along the way including; tourists, lower east side shop keepers, an Instagram star and her photographer. Mary learns about the history of New York and the life and career of George M. Cohan while finding inspiration to write her own story.

Real Magic

2019 Production

George and Ira Gershwin didn’t just write songs. They told the story of an entire country.
Their ability to swerve back and forth between popular and classic as well as their strong presence in television and cinema made the Gershwin body of work a legitimate representative of the American life.
 

In “Gershwin’s Real Magic” the timeless standards gain new arrangements with a Latin touch to tell the story of a new America. A more diverse one. The witty and humorous one-act musical developed by Inside Broadway addresses themes like immigration, gentrification and prejudice targeting young audiences across the United States. And its message couldn’t be more timely (or more Gershwin!): only love will save the day, and it’s here to stay.
