Movin' Out Story

"Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies / And the king and the queen of the prom." Rock and roll fans first got to know Brenda and Eddie back in 1977, when a talented piano man from Long Island named Billy Joel introduced the high school sweethearts in the song "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" on his breakthrough album The Stranger. Now Brenda and Eddie are on Broadway, along with a bunch of their friends, in the Tony-winning musical Movin' Out. "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" as well as the complete songbook of five-time Grammy winner Joel, which features countless story-driven songs, inspired modern dance maestro Twyla Tharp. With Joel's blessing, Tharp created her own story around the songs--of two turbulent American decades for a group of lifelong friends--and brought it to the Broadway stage to critical hosannas. [IMG:L]Both Joel and Tharp won 2003 Tony Awards for their work on Movin' Out, which has become a favorite for both fans of dance and rock and roll in New York City and across the country thanks to a highly-successful national tour. Featuring a remarkable cast of 27 and 24 Billy Joel classics played by an electrifying onstage band, this unique musical takes us back to a time we all remember, to the days when almost anything could happen, to the nights when almost everything did.
