The Bobby Darin Story

 

 Review by Brenda Repland

 

In the latest of the Lyrics & Lyricists series, the vocalists presented a retrospective on Bobby Darin that covered his life from his beginnings in the Bronx to his many hits and successes.

 

Jonathan Groff, portraying Darin, sang many of biggest hits.  He seemed to be most fitted to the numbers that came late in Darin’s career when he had changed his style somewhat.  (Egs. “If I Were A Carpenter.”)

 

The highlights of the evening –

 

“Hound Dog,” sung by a terrific George Salazar who brought spirit and life to the stage every time he appeared. 

 

“Up A Lazy River,” sung by a quintet.

 

“I Ain’t Got Nobody” with a great clarinet and trumpet.

 

“Mack the Knife,” sung lushly first in German by David Pittu and great band support.

 

“Multiplication,” with a thrilling piano.

 

“Danke Schoen,” sung by George Salazar to a beat that electrified the audience.

 

 

The star of the evening really was Mr. Salazar.  Let’s hope we see more of him in the near future.
