The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream tour makes a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall Thursday, May 30 at 8 p.m.
CLEARWATER - Producers Steven Van Zandt and Maureen Van Zandt, Marc Brickman, Larry Magid and BASE Entertainment announce that following a critically acclaimed, sold-out Broadway engagement, The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream will embark on a tour to play venues across North America. The tour kicks off May 24 in Hollywood, Fla., and includes a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall on Thursday, May 30 at 8 p.m.
The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream premiered on Broadway to critical acclaim this spring selling out 15 performances. The show is directed by Steven Van Zandt and Marc Brickman, with music by Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati. The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream has stage, video and lighting design by Brickman and has music production and is written by legendary guitarist Van Zandt.
A hybrid of a rock ‘n’ roll concert and a Broadway show, The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream marks the first time The Rascals, America’s classic blue-eyed soul band, have played together since 1970.
Original band members Felix Cavaliere (keyboard and vocals), Eddie Brigati (vocals), Dino Danelli (drums) and Gene Cornish (guitar) will present a complete concert performance including songs that captured the spirit of America in the 1960s such as their smash hits Good Lovin’, Lonely Too Long, It’s a Beautiful Morning, How Can I Be Sure and Groovin’.
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 for this unique concert experience.
