With a cast consisting of stars from Broadway's greatest rock musicals along with rock ‘n roll recording artists, Neil Berg will tell the story of rock ‘n roll in Neil Berg’s 50 Years of Rock and Roll, mostly through the music (with five singers and a five-piece band) but also with his own narrative that includes some little-known and surprising tales.
From the progenitors of Rock and Roll in the 1940s, through the glory years of the '50s, '60s, and '70s, up until MTV in the early '80s, Neil Berg's 50 Years of Rock & Roll employs fascinating stories and performances of groundbreaking music that span from Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley to Aerosmith, the Eagles, and Journey.
The composer/co-lyricist of the award-winning new rock musical THE 12, Berg also scored the new Broadway-bound musical Grumpy Old Men, which opened to rave reviews for its U.S. premiere at The Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine, the hit Off-Broadway musical The Prince and the Pauper, Tim and Scrooge, which ran at the Westchester Broadway Theatre in NY, and The Man Who Would Be King. Berg created and co-produced the #1 Broadway touring concert in America, Neil Berg’s 100 Years of Broadway, as well as Neil Berg’s 50 Years of Rock & Roll, and Neil Berg’s Pianomen.
