BWW Review: LEADER OF THE PACK Zooms Into Downriver Actors Guild

The Downriver Actors Guild will be taking a step back in time when the tunes were "Outta Site" and "Going Steady" was a teenager's biggest concern. It's the 60's, and Leader of the Pack is sure to please. Leader of the pack celebrates the life and times of Ellie Greenwich, and her doo wop sounds that skyrocketed to the top of the 60's music charts.
