Someone to Watch Over Me

Last Saturday I attended a fundraiser benefiting AIDS Project Los Angeles at the Wilshire Theatre. The name of the Benefit is Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event(S.T.A.G.E.). This year's theme was The Brothers Gershwin: George & Ira. It was also the 25th anniversary for S.T.A.G.E. They also held a Silent and Live Auction with some great stuff (including the autographed WestSide Story Broadway revival cast poster which I tried to bid on but lost).

The show full of great numbers all Gershwin music, all from artist who devoted their time and talent for free. The cast included Shoshana Bean, Ian Abercrombie, Loretta Devine, Carol Cook, Lucas Grabeel, Sam Harris, Kimberly Locke, Jai Rodriquez, Bruce Vilance, John Lloyd Young and, the cast of Forever Plaid. By far the stand out performers where the cast of Forever Plaid and Lorette Devine who tore down the house with Someone to Watch Over Me. CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO OF ABC NEWS COVERING THE STORY
"Someone to Watch Over Me" is a song by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin from the musical Oh, Kay!
