Broadway has created a new kind of musical … well not so new anymore … the JukeBox Musical. A stroll down musical memory lane of a performer or group that has made an impact on the entertainment industry. Jersey Boys probably was the most visible example, but there have been Broadway bows of shows featuring autobiographical or imaginary tales peppered with the music of Billie Holliday, The Beatles, Fat’s Waller, The Beatles, Kurt Weill, The Beatles, Carole King, The Beatles, ABBA, The Beatles, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Peter Allen, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffet, The Beatles, Donna Summer, The Beatles, The Shirelles, The Beatles, The Gogos, The Beatles, Green Day, The Beatles, Tupac Shakur … and did we mention The Beatles?
Now, Town Hall will contribute to the Broadway skyline by hosting a special one-night-only concert featuring the phenomenal band, Beginnings, and their tribute to the legendary 70/80s band, Chicago; and That Motown Band – celebrating the 60s record label that fostered powerful, definite and historic music.
Preemo Productions in association with Town Hall hosts a concert honoring the American rock band, Chicago, and the timeless music of Motown
We caught up with BEGINNINGS’ manager, Mason Swearingen.
