The Rascals are Rocking Again, Broadway Style

“Once Upon a Dream Starring The Rascals,” the latest hybrid of Broadway and vintage rock n’ roll, is headed to Chicago’s Cadillac Palace Theatre, 151 W. Randolph, where it is set to play for five performances only, Nov. 5-10.

The show, already seen on Broadway, 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 such hit songs that captured the spirit of America in the 1960’s as “Good Lovin’,” “Lonely Too Long,” “It’s a Beautiful Morning,” “How Can I Be Sure” and “Groovin’.” The show also will spin the history of the iconic group as told through archival footage, narration, and dramatic film segments viewed on the latest LED screen technology.

“Once Upon a Dream Starring the Rascals” debuted on Broadway last spring, selling out 15 performances. Directed by Steven Van Zandt and Marc Brickman, with music by Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati, it features stage, video and lighting design by Brickman, with text and music production by legendary guitarist Van Zandt.
