The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts
An immersive, concert-style theater show, The Simon & Garfunkel Story 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. The production culminates with the famous “Concert in Central Park” reunion of 1981, where the pair saw 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 Simon & Garfunkel’s 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 poignantly captured the times. 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 & Garfunkel were awarded a Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award, and the following year “The Sound of Silence” was awarded a Grammy® Hall of Fame Award.
