The show was wonderful, it brought the creative process of Gershwin alive. As a lover of Porgy and Bess, I have always admired Gershwin, but knew little of his personal life and artistic temperment. It was truly a revelation to see a dramatization of the creation of "An American in Paris". Although it was a one man show, it was never boring and the audience was totally engaged. One thing lacking from the historical narrative was that there was no explanation for Gershwin's interest in African American culture. Audience participation, when a young lady out of the audience volunteered to sing a long from her seat. She identified herself as an administrative assistant, but sang magnificently. It was truly transcendent to see such an ordinary looking person display such great talent at a moment's notice. I imagined that she must have been a standout in musical theater at her high school or college
