We enjoyed this show. There was a lot of energy and fun music. The Strand was an excellent, intimate venue. If you went to a local theather in the 50's or 60's, you will be reminded of your past.

This was a great show! 90 minutes with no intermission ... 90 minutes of great music, good acting, and lots of fun. I bumped into a friend who was seeing the show for a second time. I would see it again, too! I really liked it!

Acoustics were weak. Slides on 2 big screens could have easily been turned into active, fun-to-watch videos via a pc. Would have made lulls between costume changes enjoyable.
Uneven quality of dancers, some great, some were obviously having...continued

Description

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.
