GREENE – In the same vein as last year’s smash hit “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” the new musical “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do” (co-produced by NBT Bank and Cool 100), features many of Neil Sedaka’s most popular songs. With only a 3-week run, this Chenango River Theatre musical will sell out early, even with special discounted Wednesday performances added to the regular schedule.
Set in 1960, it’s the story of Lois and Marge, two friends from Brooklyn in search of good times and romance over one wild Labor Day weekend. Marge’s fiancé has called off their wedding and her best friend, Lois, is determined to cheer her up and get her back on the market, so they head for the Catskills and the Paradise Resort. On their wild get-away, the girls meet some colorful characters - journey back to a more innocent time and relive summers gone by with all the trials, tribulations and emotional upheavals of teenage life and love.
