Oh Cecilia, you’re breaking my heart! The Simon and Garfunkel Story is a staged biopic/cover concert that has a habit of sneaking into the DC area and then moving on well before audiences have been able to get enough of the folk-rock royalty duo.
Much like when it came to National Theatre in January 2020, the flash spectacle gave DC three quick performances in only two days!
This is why subscription membership to BroadwayAtTheNational with its advance notice of shows and pre-sale of tickets coming to National Theatre is worth it. No one in DC should have missed this show!
But in case you are considering tickets for another stop on its North American tour (it comes to Baltimore in March) — or better yet if it comes around again quickly to the National Theatre, The Simon and Garfunkel Story uses Art Garfunkel and Paul Simon’s own songs to tell their tale, from their humble beginnings as “Tom & Jerry” to their ultimate success as one of the best-selling music groups of the 60s with an enduring legacy.
Audiences sing along to a live band performing favorite hits like Mrs. Robinson, Cecelia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Sounds of Silence, and Homeward Bound. They remark over the uncanny vocal resemblance of the cast’s* voices to Simon and Garfunkel themselves, and they find extra delight in watching how much fun the entire cast — but especially the bass and electric guitar in the back — has recreating this must-see trip down memory lane and performing live music for in-person audiences again.
