The Wanderer 

Based on the life and music of Dion

 

Dion. One name set the standard of coolness for a generation. Dion DiMucci’s music (“Runaround Sue”, “Teenager in Love”, “I Wonder Why”) helped define a generation of rock 'n' rollers, but behind the hits and the heartthrob was a troubled street kid from the Bronx. THE WANDERER is a real-life musical, the no-holds-barred story of Dion’s rise to fame, his battle with addiction and the faith and love that turned his life around. Set to the iconic sounds of an incomparable era in American music, Dion’s story shines a light on the darker side of celebrity and celebrates the triumph of the human spirit. Don’t miss the riveting true story of New York’s rebel king, the man Bruce Springsteen calls “the link between Frank Sinatra and rock 'n' roll.”

 

EYE-POPPING! THE WANDERER SUCCEEDS ON SHEER SONIC STRENGTH! I was continuously charmed by this musical, which features a divinely voiced Mike Wartella crooning Dion’s rock ’n’ roll classics. Wow, do they sound good!
