George M!

The Wick Theatre celebrates July as a cast of 20 brings to life the remarkable story of one of greatest showmen of all time, George M. Cohan. This fully-costumed concert version of George M! will be narrated by Susan Powell, Miss America 1981, and will feature toe-tapping tunes including “You’re a Grand Old Flag”, “Yankee Doodle” and “Give My Regards to Broadway”.

“We are kicking off our first summer season with the story of the biggest Broadway star of his day,” said Marilynn A. Wick, Managing Executive Producer.  “George M. Cohan, who was known as ‘The Man Who Owned Broadway,’ left us with an incredible legacy of hit songs, and we will bring all those treasures to life with a thrilling production featuring an all-star cast including one of the most beloved Miss Americas, Susan Powell.”

Susan Powell has performed for audiences in theatres, opera houses and on concert stages all over the world. She also hosted her own one-hour television series on the Discovery Channel called HOME MATTERS which ran for 12 seasons. A student at Oklahoma City University, Susan was named Miss Oklahoma 1980 and Miss America 1981. After completing that exciting tour, she moved to New York City and began pursuing her career.
