Broadway performers Brad and Jennifer Moranz are producing an all-new original musical revue celebrating the greatest music of our generation. “The Great American Songbook” runs for three performances only Oct. 11-12 at the Charleston Music Hall.
The show includes music from popular Broadway and Hollywood musicals from the 1920s to the 1960s. “The Great American Songbook” features songs from such well-known composers as George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen and Richard Rodgers and recorded by such singers as Frank Sinatra, Al Jolson, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme and many others.
Attendees will be treated to favorite classics like “Accentuate the Positive,” “Over the Rainbow,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “It Had to Be You,” “You’re the Top” and countless others. Six singers from Charleston, New York and beyond will perform 40 unforgettable songs during this original production.
Brad Moranz points out that this music really is the songbook for several decades of our lives. “This timeless music took positive values and an optimistic spirit and infused it into the soundtrack of American life,” he said. “We defended our country, raised families and built a nation to these songs.”
