The Bobby Darin Story

The songs of Darin in the key of Groff. Join us as two-time Tony nominee Jonathan Groff captures the magic of Bobby Darin.

Bobby Darin was the most captivating and versatile entertainer of his time. His too short but extraordinary life took him from his birthplace (blocks from 92Y) to the Brill Building, to stage and screen, through politics and pacifism, and more. Rock and roller, nightclub singer, prolific songwriter, dazzling entertainer … “Splish Splash” … “Dream Lover” … “Mack the Knife” … Jonathan Groff will conjure it all.
