The Simon and Garfunkel Story at TPAC

An immersive concert-style theater show, The Simon and Garfunkel Story chronicles the journey shared by the folk-rock duo, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Telling the story from their humble beginnings as Tom & Jerry to their success as one of the best-selling music groups of the 1960s to their dramatic split in 1970, the show culminates with the famous The Concert in Central Park reunion in 1981 which had more than half a million fans in attendance. This nostalgic multimedia experience uses huge projection photos and original film footage and features a full live band performing all the hits including “Mrs. Robinson,” “Cecilia,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Homeward Bound,” and many more. 

With more than 100 million albums sold since 1965, Simon & Garfunkel’s harmonies and songs poignantly captured the times and made them one of the most successful folk-rock duos of all time. In addition to this, their music was used for the iconic film The Graduate (for which the song “Mrs Robinson” was written), see the title sequence here: Their music has also been used for less aesthetically significant purposes, as all fans of the classic meme know:

The show will only be at TPAC one night, February 1st. For tickets and more information, see The Simon & Garfunkel Story | TPAC®.
