Created by and featuring Broadway’s Eric Anthony* (Ring of Fire) and Ben Hope* (Once), this production guarantees an unforgettable night of entertainment for music lovers of all ages. Says Anthony, who also music directs the show: ‘We’ve taken the orchestrations of each of these twenty-seven hits and paired them down to just two acoustic guitars and two voices, giving audiences a renewed sense of the intricate lyricism of the Everly Brothers catalog.’ Hope adds: ‘Most people don’t remember that Don and Phil broke up for ten years. We want to highlight the nuances of their music, but, more importantly, we want to document the turmoil that was caused once the machine of commercialism kicked into gear. The story is chilling when that personal tension is juxtaposed with their melodic and harmonic mastery.’
