I may have enjoyed it more if our seats were not at the very end of the mezzanie row, off at an angle from the rest. The old theatre has great charm, but parking is a hassle and very expensive. Only one bathroom for the ladies with loooooong lines.

An extraordinary evening that doesn't pander to cliched images of seniors, but instead is all about celebrating the dual elements of unique song interpretation and seasoned performers.

Description

This internationally renowned group of about two dozen singers perform pop, rock and punk classics such as “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees, “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” by The Clash and “I Wanna Be Sedated” by the Ramones. The current performers in Young@Heart range in age from 72 to 88. There are some with prior professional theater or music experience, others who have performed extensively on the amateur level, and some who never stepped onto a stage before turning 80. None of the current performers of Y@H were part of the original group that formed in 1982, but they have kept alive the spirit of the early pioneers and continue to push the group in amazing new directions—always putting on a funny and engaging show.

Presented by Jam Theatricals.
