Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
Nite Out Entertainment is presenting The Simon & Garfunkel Story, the acclaimed concert-style production that is coming to the one-of-a-kind Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix on Friday, Jan. 27, and Saturday, Jan. 28.
The Simon & Garfunkel Story, which has been experienced in 50 countries worldwide and — since selling out in London’s West End — has now become the world’s leading theatre show, according to a press release.
The immersive concert-style production chronicles the amazing journey shared by the folk-rock duo, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, the release states.
Portrayed by acclaimed performers, the show features state-of-the-art projections along with original film footage and a full live band performing all the hits. With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s perfect harmonies and songs poignantly captured the times that made them one of the most successful folk-rock duos of all time.
Over the years, the duo won 10 Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
The Phoenix production is being presented by Sam and Leah Katz through their Scottsdale-based Nite Out Entertainment production company.
This duo has brought in over 36 iconic artists such as Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney as well as over 27 Broadway musicals.
Other events have included the Hollywood Bowl “Hall of Fame” Concerts, the Academy of Music Anniversary Concerts and Stadium of Fire 4th of July spectacles, which featured artists and performers such as Sting, Billy Joel, James Taylor, Garth Brooks, Rod Stewart, Jack Black, Jamie Foxx, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, John Williams and BB King.
“We are very passionate and dedicated to the arts community for people of all ages,” Ms. Katz said in a prepared statement. “The Valley has been near and dear to our hearts for over 20 years so we are thrilled that we can bring this concert-style production to the Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix. It will be an experience to remember.”
