The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream - 2013 - Broadway

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 & 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 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 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.

Featured Reviews For The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream


Once Upon a Dream: Theater Review - Hollywood Reporter
Directed by Van Zandt and Marc Brickman, Once Upon a Dream fails to dig deep into the rise and fall of one of the '60s most popular groups. Using the band members to spin their story prevents an honest telling of it...Van Zandt's book is sloppy, wanders, loses chronology and makes the guys appear less intelligent than they most likely are. As a band, the Rascals sound fine. There's something to be said for not working hard for so many years. With less wear and tear than many others groups from the period, Cavaliere and Brigati preserved their voices; Cavaliere's remains one of the most distinctive in rock. Cornish distinguishes himself with numerous guitar solos and Danelli is a wiry wonder behind the drum kit.

Review: The middle-aged Rascals find a fountain of youth on Broadway with a 15-concert stand - Associated Press
During a two-hour concert at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, the four - Felix Cavaliere on keyboard and vocals, singer Eddie Brigati, drummer Dino Danelli and guitarist Gene Cornish - seem to have taken musical Viagra. Brigati gleefully smashed two tambourines against his thigh and Cornish playfully threw guitar picks into the crowd. These pioneers of blue-eyed soul were having fun and that became infectious.
