Their final production for their 2021 season this Tony Award-winning musical comedy set in the roaring 20’s featuring the Gershwin brothers' most famous hits, including "Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off," "Someone to Watch Over Me", “Fascinating Rhythm”, “But Not for Me”, “I’ve Got a Crush on You”, "'S Wonderful” and more.
It follows a charming and wealthy playboy, Jimmy Winters, who meets a streetwise female bootlegger, Billie Bendix, the day before his wedding. Billie finds out that Jimmy has a beach house that he never uses and convinces her sidekicks, Cookie and Duke, to store 400 cases of gin in the cellar.
Hilarious chaos erupts when Jimmy shows up to the house with his new bride and her Prohibition-loving family in tow, forcing the trio to pose as the serving staff and keep the family away from the cellar.
Meanwhile a love story unfolds between Jimmy and Billie. The only thing standing in their way is that Jimmy is somewhat married—and Billie is a fugitive with gin in the cellar and the Feds at the door.
