Now seen by more than a quarter million people across the world, The Simon and Garfunkel Story tells the fascinating tale of how two young boys from Queens, New York, went on to become the world’s most successful music duo of all time.
The internationally-acclaimed hit theater show performs at the Coral Springs Center for the Arts Thursday, February 9, 2023, during their coast-to-coast U.S. tour.
Tickets go on-sale Friday, September 9, at 10 a.m.
The immersive concert-style theater show chronicles the amazing journey shared by the folk-rock duo Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, telling the story from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry to their incredible success as one of the best-selling music groups of the 60s to their dramatic split in 1970.
Using state-of-the-art video projection, photos, and original film footage, the show features a full live band performing all their hits, including Mrs. Robinson (featured in the 1967 film The Graduate), Cecilia, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Homeward Bound, and many more.
With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s perfect harmonies and songs that poignantly captured the times made them one of the most successful folk-rock duos.
Over the years, they won 10 Grammy Awards and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. In 1977, their Bridge Over Troubled Water album was nominated at the 1977 Brit Awards for Best International Album. In 2003, Simon and Garfunkel were awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; the following year, their The Sound of Silence was awarded a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
