Life Could Be a Dream

Before the Backstreet Boys and even the Jackson 5, there was a different kind of boy band, a more innocent kind—not in the way the Jonas Brothers pretend to be by wearing promise wrings, but innocent in the ‘50s do-wop way. Their name, the Crooning Crabcakes, totally wouldn’t sell records today, but in the mind of creator Roger Bean, the upstanding boys from his play Life Could Be a Dream have what it takes to make it to the big time. All they have to do is win the local radio contest. We guarantee that there’ll be no salacious lyrics or dangerous pelvic thrusting dance moves, so this stage performance is a safe bet for grandparents who can’t stand the racket we kids play today—and young children who haven’t yet learned of the evil that is MTV.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: July 6. Continues through Aug. 29, 2010
