The Doo Wop Project, a five-man vocal group comprising Broadway stars and backed by a live band, will perform at Reynolds Performance Hall at the University of Central Arkansas at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 4.
The group features stars of such smash Broadway hits as “Jersey Boys” and “Motown: The Musical”: Dominic Nolfi, Charl Brown, Russell Fischer, Dominic Scaglione Jr. and Dwayne Cooper.
According to thedoowopproject.com, “The Doo Wop Project begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. Throughout the show, DWP takes audiences on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, the Temptations and the Four Seasons, all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Winehouse.”
Amanda Horton, director of Reynolds, and Julia Dossett Morgan, director of marketing and finance, saw the group in New York last year.
“We were so blown away by their high-energy performance and their amazing voices that we just had to bring them to Conway for our audience,” said Dossett Morgan. “We’ve been counting down the days until we get to experience their show again."
