Broadway actor Don Stitt charts the arc of the career of one of the most successful songwriters of the 20th century, Johnny Mercer.

Come learn more about the gentleman from Savannah who stowed away on a boat to New York, only to end up conquering Hollywood.
Autumn Leaves, Laura, Too Marvelous for Words, Goody Goody, Jeepers Creepers, One for My Baby, The Days of Wine and Roses, That Old Black Magic, Come Rain or Come Shine, and I Wanna Be Around To Pick Up the Pieces are some of the songs that will be presented in this wry and poignant look at an American original.
