Give our regards to Broadway! Strictly Gershwin features the incomparable music of George and Ira Gershwin. Add to that a huge cast of performers (including guest tap dancers and vocalists!) and the result is a dazzling blockbuster show. Derek Deane’s choreography is a glamorous blend of classical ballet and the unmistakable moves of 1920’s Broadway. This performance will transport audiences to the golden age of Hollywood.
Tulsa Ballet is honored to be the first company to bring this entertaining work to the United States.
Note for patrons with seats in the rear mezzanine and balcony sections: Your view of the full set, including images and video projected onto a screen, may be slightly obstructed; however, this does not impact your view of the dancers or musicians on stage.
