The Rascals' Broadway Return in ONCE UPON A DREAM Canceled

THE RASCALS: ONCE UPON A DREAM announced via Facebook today that its December 2013 return to Broadway has been canceled.

The post reads: "Unfortunately, The Rascals planned return to Broadway next month has been canceled at this time. We'll keep you posted on any further developments. Happy Thanksgiving and be safe---"

The show was set to play the Great White Way in a limited engagement from December 16 through January 5 at the Marquis Theatre.

Following its sold-out run at the Richard Rodgers Theater this past spring in New York City, ONCE UPON A DREAM STARRING THE RASCALS has become a nationwide phenomenon and is currently touring to packed-house crowds across North America.

A hybrid of a rock 'n' roll concert and a Broadway show, ONCE UPON A DREAM STARRING THE RASCALS marks the first time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees The Rascals, America's classic blue-eyed soul band, have played together since 1970. Original band members Eddie Brigati (vocals), Felix Cavaliere (keyboard & vocals), Gene Cornish (guitar), and Dino Danelli (drums) present a complete concert performance including songs that captured the spirit of America in the 1960's, such as their smash hits "Good Lovin'," "Lonely Too Long," "It's a Beautiful Morning," "How Can I Be Sure" and "Groovin'." The production also features the history of the iconic group told through archival footage, narration, and dramatic film segments viewed on the latest LED screen technology.

ONCE UPON A DREAM STARRING THE RASCALS premiered on Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre to critical acclaim last spring selling out 15 performances. The show is directed by Steven Van Zandt and Marc Brickman, with music by Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati. ONCE UPON A DREAM STARRING THE RASCALS has stage, video and lighting design by Brickman and has music production written by legendary guitarist Van Zandt.
