The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream will no longer be appearing on Broadway this Christmas. A post on the group's Facebook page stated: "Unfortunately, The Rascals planned return to Broadway next month has been canceled at this time. We'll keep you posted on any further developments."
Part Broadway show, part rock concert, Once Upon a Dream, written by Steven Van Zandt and directed by Van Zandt and Marc Brickman, and featuring the legendary ‘60s pop, rock and soul group had been slated to play a three-week limited engagement at Broadway’s Marriott Marquis Theatre beginning December 15. The production is currently on a U.S. tour.
Once Upon a Time originally premiered at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, in December 2012 before opening at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre on April 16. The Rascals is comprised of singer Eddie Brigati, drummer Dino Danelli, guitarist Gene Cornish and keyboardist Felix Cavaliere. The concert features hit Rascals songs including “Groovin’,” “A Girl Like You,” “Beautiful Morning” and “People Got to Be Free.”
