The Hit Factory - FEBRUARY 7 - 22, 2015

A look back at the “Brill Building Sound”

*World Premiere*

In the 1950s and 60s, at NYC’s legendary Brill Building, you could write a song, sell a song, record a song and publish a song…sometimes in the same day. Producers like Don Kirshner and Phil Spector and songwriters like Carole King, Neil Sedaka and Leiber and Stoller dominated the airwaves with chart-topping hits for The Shirelles, Coasters, Drifters, Righteous Brothers, Bobby Darin, Connie Francis, Lesley Gore, Little Eva, Fabian, The Shangri-las, Ben E. King, Dionne Warwick and many more.

Featuring over three dozen enduring tunes, this all-new musical, from the creators of last season’s Burt Bacharach show, revisits the legacy of the time and place known as The Hit Factory.

Written and conceived by Ralph Meranto and Sandy Foster
Directed by Ralph Meranto
Musical Direction by Casey Filiaci
