The Rascals reuniting on Broadway

  • Print

NEW YORK -- The band that gave us Good Lovin', People Got To Be Free and I've Been Lonely Too Long are grooving their way to Broadway.

The original members of the Rascals, the 1960s-era blue-eyed soul quartet -- singer Eddie Brigati, keyboardist Felix Cavaliere, guitarist Gene Cornish and drummer Dino Danelli -- will reunite for what producers call "a hybrid of a rock 'n' roll concert and a Broadway show."

Performances of The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream will begin April 15 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre and will last only 15 performances, ending May 5. The show made its debut in late 2012 in Port Chester, N.Y.

It will showcase their hits, which also include It's a Beautiful Morning, How Can I Be Sure and Groovin', and tell their history through archival footage, narration and dramatic film segments.

Steven Van Zandt, a founding member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, is producing the show. Van Zandt inducted the band into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

"The Rascals created music that inspired a generation, and that feeling has lived on through their original fans and the legions of new fans that have discovered their music over the years," Van Zandt said in a statement.

The Rascals trip to Broadway comes on the heels of other acts that have made the Great White Way into a concert location, including Barry Manilow, Frankie Valli and Hugh Jackman.
