Steven Van Zandt Reuniting The Rascals
Van Zandt set up a Kickstarter campaign, which had 144 backers at press time, to help fund the project which is set to debut at the The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York, December 13th, 14th, and 15th.
Steven Van Zandt had this to say: "To do justice to the Rascals importance, I've written a show for them that is just as unique as they are. It's called "Once Upon a Dream". It's a combination of a Rock Concert and a Broadway show that will include their own live performance by the original four Rascals - Felix, Eddie, Dino, Gene, and be complimented by filmed segments and news footage and will be a show that they can take all over the country.... The show will be an uplifting inspiration for you fans that have been waiting all these years, praying for a Rascals comeback, and those of you who are younger will get a real taste of the '60's you missed the first time around. Me and Marc have invested our time, money, and blood these last few years for this idea and now we need you to bring it home. Not one dollar that is contributed will go into anyone's pocket, or be commissioned in any way, every dollar will go into the production making it as good as it can be, as great as the Rascals deserve....So that's it. The Rascals are coming back. We have been looking for other investors but nobody has any vision anymore. Frankly nobody believes in this dream except me, Marc, Peter and you. The production will be as big as you make it. On behalf of the Rascals Thank you." You can learn more on the Kickstarter page.
