Big 3-night concert/theatrical event is fueled by
high-profile Kickstarter campaign.
By Blurt Staff
The Rascals’ original
lineup — Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, Dino Danelli, and Gene Cornish — will
reunite for their first public performances in 40 years with “Once Upon A Dream,” a
combination concert/theatrical event produced and directed by Steven Van Zandt
and lighting/projection wizard Marc Brickman (Pink Floyd, Paul McCartney, Blue
Man Group, the Olympics). Set for a three-night run Dec 13-15 at the
newly-reopened Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, the shows will feature a
complete concert performance by the band combined with the history of the group
told through archival footage, narration, and dramatic film segments viewed on
the latest LED screen technology.

“More than just a comeback or
reunion, the show will remind audiences how uniquely inspirational,
entertaining, and historically important the Rascals’ music is,” explains
Van Zandt. “Their music was unique not only in its greatness, but through
their hit singles they told the entire story of the sixties.” “Once
Upon a Dream” will take full advantage of The Capitol Theatre’s
unparalleled sound and projection capabilities, with never-before-seen elements
of staging and lighting design from Brickman, a premier visual artist whose
resume includes Roger Waters’ recent ‘The Wall’ tour.
Tickets will go on sale Sept 28 via http://www.thecapitoltheatre.com.
