Strike up the band, as Roundabout Theatre Company presents one special night of Gershwin song-and-dance magic. Two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster and Tony Award winner Gavin Creel return to Roundabout to head the cast of our benefit performance of My One and Only, directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford.

From the airfield to the aquacade, this smash musical transports you across the carefree, jazz-charged world of 1927. A songbook of 16 of George and Ira’s classics—including “Funny Face,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” and “How Long Has This Been Goin’ On?”—launches the story of a heartsick aviator (Creel), a cross-channel swimmer (Foster), and the hilarious highs and lows of their unstoppable romance. He loves, and she loves, and they’ll cross land, sea and sky to find a way to be together. ’S wonderful, ’s marvelous—and ’s taking flight for one night only.

Proceeds from My One and Only will benefit Roundabout’s Musical Theatre Fund, which is dedicated to preserving this great American art form by bringing familiar and lesser-known works to a new generation of theatregoers, like this spring’s Kiss Me, Kate.
