The four original members of '60s favorites The Rascals will bring hits like Groovin', Good Lovin' and How Can I Be Sure to Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre for 15 performances this April and May.
Tickets for The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream - a hybrid rock concert/Broadway show starring Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, Dino Danelli and Gene Cornish - go on sale Friday, with prices ranging from $27 to $137. The show not only features the hits that Cavaliere and Brigati wrote for the band but also tells the group's history through archival footage, film segments and narration.
Recording as both the Young Rascals and the Rascals, the group had 13 top-40 singles between 1966 and 1969, including People Got to Be Free, Lonely Too Long and It's a Beautiful Morning. Brigati left the band in 1970, with Cornish following in 1971. Cavaliere and Danelli released the last album under the Rascals' name, The Island of Real. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
Once Upon a Dream made its debut in December at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y., and marked the lineup's first shows together in more than 40 years.
Steven Van Zandt, the guitarist for Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, wrote Once Upon a Dream and also is co-directing and co-producing the show.
