Broadway is about to get some good lovin’ thanks to the hit-making '60s group The Rascals. Their new show, The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream, opens on Broadway on April 16 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Written by Steven Van Zandt (The E Street Band) and directed by Van Zandt and Marc Brickman, the group will be groovin’ on the Great White Way through May 5.
The Rascals is comprised of singer Eddie Brigati, drummer Dino Danelli, guitarist Gene Cornish and keyboardist Felix Cavaliere. The group originally premiered Once Upon a Dream at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY in December 2012.
Initially known as The Young Rascals, the band rose to fame in the mid ‘60s with hit songs including “Groovin’,” “People Got to Be Free,” “A Girl Like You” and “A Beautiful Morning,” all of which will be featured in Once Upon a Dream. Other Rascals songs include “A Ray of Hope,” “Heaven,” “Come On Up,” “You Better Run,” “It’s Wonderful” and “How Can I Be Sure?”
