This hit Broadway musical revue celebrates the life and times of Ellie Greenwich, whose doo-wop sounds skyrocketed to the top of the Sixties charts. The story of Ellie’s rise to fame and fortune is punctuated with the virtual Hit Parade of her music: “Chapel of Love,” “Da Do Ron Ron,” “Be My Baby,” “Hanky Panky,” “Do Wah Diddy,” “And Then He Kissed Me,” “River Deep. Mountain High” and, of course, the title song.
In 2004 Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest songs of all time included six by Ellie and her husband and writing partner, Jeff Barry — more than by any other songwriting team. A member of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, Ellie Greenwich’s songs have earned more than 25 gold and platinum records, sales in the tens of millions, and 33 BMI Awards.
About the Ticket Supplier: Atlanta Lyric Theatre
Atlanta Lyric Theatre, Atlanta’s only local professional musical theater company, was formed in 1980 by Tedi and Robert Langdon and Sally Knap as the Southeastern Savoyards, a repertory theatre company dedicated to presenting the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. The company’s first production, Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado, was performed at Emory University in December 1980. Later, the company’s productions were moved to the Marist School, the 14th Street Playhouse, Center Stage Theater, and then to the Robert Ferst Center for the Arts on the campus of Georgia Tech where the company’s main stage performances were produced for seventeen seasons.
