(July 28, 2023–Chatham, NY) Broadway’s George Dvorsky is set to debut his solo show, “Something Wonderful,” at the Mac-Haydn Theatre on August 5 and 11.

Dvorsky’s extensive performance career has covered too many iconic roles to count – from the title role in “The Scarlet Pimpernel” on Broadway, to Disney Animated Film voiceovers in titles like “Beauty and the Beast,” to his Berkshire Theatre Award-winning Daddy Warbucks in “Annie” in Chatham. 

Featuring Mac-Haydn Music Supervisor Eric Shorey on piano, “Something Wonderful” is a culmination of the songs that have resonated with Dvorsky most deeply throughout his life – on stage and screen, and off. 

“After 45 years in this business and performing all over the world, I feel it’s time to tell some good stories about the wonderful music I’ve sung from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Sondheim,” said Dvorsky. “I’ve done bits and pieces of this show here and there but I felt it’s time to put it all together. The title Something Wonderful is from the song from THE KING AND I which is my favorite Musical Theatre Song and there’s even a story of how I got to record it.”

The evening will cover a wide variety of composers, many of whom Dvorsky has worked with directly, including Kander & Ebb (Chicago, The World Goes ‘Round), Rodgers & Hammerstein (Oklahoma, The King & I) and Jerome Kern, as well as a few Disney classics.

Shorey and Dvorsky first met on the National Tour of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” where they shared the stage with Mac-Haydn Producing Artistic Director John Saunders. Shorey, in addition to his work as an accompanist, has performed across the country, including performances at Paper Mill Playhouse, Goodspeed Opera House, North Shore Music Theatre, and Arena Stage.

“I’m so excited to kick off the special events this season with someone I have admired for such a long time,” said Shorey. “I am so lucky to collaborate with George to tell his story through music from his legendary career.”

No stranger to cabaret-style concerts, Dvorsky recently spent time touring with Chita Rivera in her own concert, “Chita: The Rhythm of My Life,” after the two previously shared the stage in the Paper Mill Playhouse production of “Anything Goes.”

“Something Wonderful” is the first of four cabaret-style productions in the 2023 Mac-Haydn’s Limited Performance Series. Following Dvorsky’s performances are: “Sondheim Tribute Revue” on August 23 and 25,  “Showstoppers” on September 2, and “Still Within The Sound Of My Voice: The Songs of Linda Ronstadt,” featuring Elizabeth Ward Land, on September 13.
