TAG revives ‘Ira & George and Shari & Jim,’ plus Kip
By popular demand, Shari Lynn’s tribute to composers Ira and George Gershwin, launched last year by The Actors’ Group, is being revived in a limited-run fundraiser starting tonight (Jan. 1).
The show, entitled “Ira & George and Shari & Jim,” was written and staged by veteran theater and nightclub performer Shari Lynn, who also is a teacher at Hawaii School for Girls. Jim Howard, pianist, returns on the keyboards, but this engagement also will feature veteran tenor of opera and theater, Kip Wilborn, perhaps best known for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in the Ron Bright-directed “Les Miserables” production at Paliku Theatre at Windward Community Theatre.
“We’re excited to have Kip as a guest performer,” said Shari.
Veteran actor-director-choreographer Brad Powell provided additional staging.
Performances will be at the TAG venue, The Brad Powell Theatre, located at 615 Iwilei Road, on the ground floor of The Shops at Dole Cannery, opposite the Regal Cinemas complex.
Showtimes are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 4 p.m. Sundays, now through Jan. 17.
Suggested donation is $40.
