Move over, Frank Sinatra! Melanie Gall presents the story of Jack Young, an ambitious young man with the “Voice of a Generation” who worked his way up from a delivery boy in a Toronto pants factory to singing with his own orchestra! With the incredible, unforgettable American Songbook songs as the soundtrack to his life, Jack supported his family through the Great Depression, won his true love, and became a family legend.



This nostalgic new musical is a mix of nostalgia and inspiration, and brings back the time of our grandparents, letting the past life again!



With hits by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and other superstars of popular song, this show features a dozen hits, including “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” “I’m in the Mood for Love,” “Side By Side,” and “Stardust.”



From the award-winning performer of Fringe sellout hits Ingenue (5 STARS – Adelaide Advertiser), Piaf and Brel (5 STARS - Winnipeg Free Press) and Toast to Prohibition (5 STARS - Edmonton Journal), Melanie has performed in over 30 countries, as well as off-Broadway in New York and at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
