THE SIMON & GARFUNKEL STORY
AT THE KAUFFMAN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
OCTOBER 22 & 23
TICKETS ARE ON SALE MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
The internationally-acclaimed hit theater show THE SIMON & GARFUNKEL STORY will stop by the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on October 22nd & 23rd during the North American tour. The immersive concert-style theater show chronicles the amazing journey shared by the folk-rock duo, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. It tells the story from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry to their incredible success as one of the best-selling music groups of the ‘60s to their dramatic split in 1970. It culminates with the famous “The Concert in Central Park” reunion in 1981 with more than half a million fans in attendance.
Using huge projection photos and original film footage, the show also features a full live band performing all of their hits, including ‘Mrs. Robinson’, ‘Cecilia’, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘Homeward Bound’ and many more.
With more than 100 million album sales since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s perfect harmonies and songs that poignantly captured the times made them one of the most successful folk-rock duos of all time. Over the years, they won 10 Grammy Awards® and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. In 1977, their Bridge Over Troubled Water album was nominated at the 1977 Brit Awards for Best International
Album. In 2003, Simon and Garfunkel were awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement
Award and the following year saw their “The Sound of Silence” awarded a Grammy Hall of Fame Award.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel do not appear in the production.
They are portrayed by actors.
