From the writer/director/producer of the smash hit The Marvelous Wonderettes comes this 1960s musical comedy follow-up. The doo-wop quartet called The Crooning Crabcakes -- the boy group once banned from the Springfield High School prom in favor of the Wonderettes -- sets out to finally find their own path to the top of the charts by entering a radio talent contest. This family-friendly show features plenty of fun banter, along with such classic songs as "Stay (Just a Little Bit Longer)," "Runaround Sue," "The Great Pretender," "Tears On My Pillow," "Unchained Melody," "Earth Angel" and more.

the performance was a joy! the story was relevant to current times though

Surprisingly intimate, natural and humorous, Street Scene reminds audiences of the nobility, passions and human failings common to all. By placing in stark relief the disparities between rich and poor, the flawed attitudes toward newcomers, the drive to create a better life, and the simple yearning for kindness and love, the play prompts viewers to recognize the same stories taking place today just down their own block.
