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.

Plenty of parking as downtown meters do not require money after 5. There is a "coat check" which makes so much sense during the winter months.Words By Ira Gershwin and the Great American Songbook info • Dec 27 2013 star this tip starred

Ira has an excellent voice for this type of performance and was very much in command of all of the scenes. The musicians are awesome and so are the vocalists. I would have liked more music and less talk as the Gershwin's have created wonderful music which should have/could have been included in the performance.

This was my first Park Theater experience. The venue was quite nice: an intimate-size theater, good sight lines from any seat and decent acoustics.
The Gershwin show was different from what was expected, and not as enjoyable as anticipated. ...continued
