THE RASCALS: ONCE UPON A DREAM
The Rascals’ original lineup—Felix Cavaliere, Gene Cornish, Eddie Brigati and Dino Danelli—will reunite for their first public performances in over 40 years with “Once Upon A Dream,” a combination concert/theatrical event produced and directed by Steven Van Zandt and lighting/projection wizard Marc Brickman. It’s a Rock N Soul dance party meets The Jersey Boys.
In addition to the concert experience, the history of The Rascals, and the history of the ‘60’s through their music, will be dramaticized by a combination of narration, filmed scenes of actors acting out key moments in the band’s history, news footage, and archival footage of the band.
There will elements of the staging and light design never seen before just as Marc Brickman has done in his previous groundbreaking work with Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Blue Man Group, the Olympics, and Roger Waters’ recent ‘The Wall’ tour.
More than just a comeback or reunion concert, the show will remind the audience how uniquely inspirational, entertaining, and historically important the Rascals’ music is.
It will debut at the The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, December 13th, 14th, and 15th, 2012. The theater is uniquely qualified for this debut, owner Peter Shapiro (Brooklyn Bowl, Wetlands, U2 3D) having restored it to it’s 1926 magnificence while equipping it with a state of the art lighting, projection, and sound system.
