The group's "One Upon A Dream" shows are set for December 13, 14 and 15 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. This will be their first performances in more 40 years featuring the original lineup of Felix Cavaliere, Gene Cornish, Eddie Brigati and Dino Danelli. A multimedia presentation is planned with Van Zandt serving as producer and director with lighting expert Marc Brickman.
"The show will be an uplifting inspiration for you fans that have been waiting all these years, praying for a Rascals comeback, and those of you who are younger will get a real taste of the Sixties you missed the first time around," says Van Zandt.
He added, "Me and Marc have invested our time, money and blood these last few years for this idea and now we need you to bring it home, Not one dollar that is contributed will go into anyone's pocket, or be commissioned in any way, every dollar will go into the production making it as good as it can be, as great as the Rascals deserve. So that's it. The Rascals are coming back. The production will be as big as you make it."
