George M!

Music and lyrics by George M. Cohan
Book by Michael Stewart and John and Francine Pascal
Lyrics and Musical Revisions by Mary Cohan

GEORGE M! recounts the life story of George M. Cohan, a giant of the American musical Theater who penned songs like "Yankee Doodle Dandy," "Over There," "You're A Grand Old Flag," and "Give My Regards to Broadway." In his triumphant career, Cohan helped transform the Broadway musical from a slapdash patchwork of songs and sketches into a streamlined, book-driven musical story. Covering a sixty-year period from his childhood in vaudeville through his towering success on Broadway, GEORGE M! presents a rousing, tuneful portrait of this legendary song-and-dance man.
