The Simon & Garfunkel Story Comes To Mayo On September 27
(MORRISTOWN, NJ) -- The internationally-acclaimed hit theater show The Simon & Garfunkel Story comes to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 8:00pm. The immersive concert-style theater show chronicles the amazing journey shared by the folk-rock duo, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Tickets range from $39-$69.
It tells the story from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry to their incredible success as one of the best-selling music groups of the '60s to their dramatic split in 1970. It culminates with the famous "The Concert in Central Park" reunion in 1981 with more than half a million fans in attendance.
Using huge projection photos and original film footage, this 50th Anniversary celebration also features a full live band performing all of their hits, including "Mrs. Robinson" (featured in the 1967 film The Graduate), "Cecilia," "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Homeward Bound" and many more.
With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel's perfect harmonies and songs that poignantly captured the times made them one of the most successful folk-rock duos of all time. Over the years, they won 10 Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in1990. In 2003, Simon and Garfunkel were awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the following year saw their "The Sound of Silence" awarded a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story has been seen by more than a quarter-million people throughout the U.K. and Europe.
