August 8 - 30, 2014
“Breaking Up Is Hard To Do” is set at a Catskills resort in the early 1960’s. It is the sweetly comic story of Lois and Marge, two friends from Brooklyn, in search of good times and romance over one wild Labor Day weekend. After Marge is left at the altar, Lois persuades her to go ahead and take her honeymoon trip anyway. When the two friends arrive at Esther’s Paradise Resort, they get dragged onstage during the Friday night show. There they meet Del del Monaco, the vain singer; Harvey Feldman, the stand-up comic; Gabriel Green, the resort’s general handyman; and Esther, the flamboyant owner of the resort. Everyone at Esther’s is excited because a representative from American Bandstand is coming on Sunday to hear Del’s newest song, and possibly put him on the show. Lois practically pushes the moping Marge into Del’s arms, and Marge begins to fall for him. Unfortunately, Gabe has also noticed Marge, but knows he would never be chosen over his smooth cousin. Meanwhile, Harvey and Esther have their own relationship issues to deal with. By the time Sunday night rolls around, things have come to a head, but everything gets resolved during the show that night. The score showcases 18 Neil Sedaka classics, including “Where the Boys Are,” “Sweet Sixteen,” “Calendar Girl,” “Laughter in the Rain,” and of course, the chart-topping title song.
