The Rascals Play Cobb Energy Centre June 21-22

2013 June 14


“The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream,” the show that ran on Broadway featuring the original band members, plays at the Cobb Energy Centre this weekend. A hybrid of a Broadway show and a concert by the original band members, Felix Cavaliere (keyboard & vocals), Eddie Brigati (vocals), Dino Danelli (drums) and Gene Cornish (guitar),  the show is mainly a concert featuring the band’s greatest hits, such as “Groovin’,” “Good Lovin’ ” and “People Got To Be Free.”

The production will also feature the history of the iconic group told through archival footage, narration, and dramatic film segments viewed on the latest LED screen technology.  “The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream” made its debut at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.  Originally scheduled to play three performances in December 2012, an additional three shows had to be added to accommodate the demand

The show sold-out on Broadway, where it had a two-week run, and a snippet of it ran last week on the Tony Awards.  Don’t go expecting to see a Broadway show in the vein of “Jersey Boys” because it’s mainly a concert. Go to see one of the greatest bands from the sixties.

Written  by Steven Van Zandt and directed by him and Marc Brickman, “The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream” will be playing at Cobb Energy Centre June 21-22.  Ticket prices start at $29.50 plus applicable fees and can be purchased by visiting Ticketmaster.com,  at the Cobb Energy Centre Box Office, or by calling 800-745-300.
