Get an immersive, fun musical history lesson when the Centenary Stage Company kicks off its 2016-17 season with “The Doo Wop Project” on Saturday, Sept. 24.
“The Doo Wop Project,” which will be held in the Sitnik Theater, begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. The show takes the audience on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts, and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, the Temptations, and the Four Seasons all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz, and Amy Winehouse.
Featuring current and former stars of Broadway, “The Doo Wop Project” recreates — and in some cases entirely reimagines — some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history. “The Doo Wop Project” blends music with stories of upbringing and being “in the business,” particularly backstage at The August Wilson Theatre, “home” of the Jersey Boys.
