This all-new production, set on the streets of New York City, tells of the story of friendship between a newspaper boy and the great American composer, George Gershwin.

Families will be captivated by more than 20 of Gershwin’s most popular compositions performed by the Kansas City Symphony, including An American in Paris, “I Got Rhythm,” Porgy and Bess and Rhapsody in Blue. Tickets start at $20 for adults and $10 for children. For more information, please call the Symphony Box Office at (816) 471-0400 or visit kcsymphony.org.
