A musical based on the life and works of songwriter Johnny Mercer. Johnny Mercer wrote more than 1000 popular songs. This glittering entertainment depicts a songwriter's journey through 'the sunshine and shadows' of life. Johnny Mercer was born in Savannah Georgia 1909. A hick. A hayseed. Not part of that wonderful explosion of urban talent like Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, The Gershwins etc. But he went on to be nominated for academy awards no less than 18 times. And he won four times. No wonder he was called The Poet Laureate of America. Performers Andrew Halliday, Sally Hughes, Daniel Gillingwater, Alexandra Jay.
