Has anyone ever read you a fairytale? So goes the opening line of “Once Upon A Time” the best-known song from BKLYN THE MUSICAL, a show that you might not have heard of before (it played on Broadway in 2004) but one that, in the hands of the stellar team of performers and creatives at the Titusville Playhouse, shines so brightly it just might become your new favorite. This story of love, loss, fame, faith and fate is one of those hidden gems that is performed so well and brought to life so flawlessly that it makes you want to leave the theatre and shout from the rooftops so others can experience the magic for themselves. Trust me – you need this musical in your life.
