Thought I'd share for NJ newcomers (like we are). The Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn (which is about a 16 minute drive from The Pointe), is presenting "The Wanderer," a jukebox musical about Dion DiMucci of Dion and the Belmonts. Here's the description and a link to the Playhouse website:
MAR 24–APR 24, 2022
He’s coming back around after a postponement in the spring of 2020. Dion. One name set the standard of cool for a generation. An Italian-American kid from the Bronx, Dion DiMucci skyrocketed to fame as a teenage heartthrob in the 1950s and early ’60s with hits like “Runaround Sue,” “Teenager in Love,” and “I Wonder Why.” Now, his extraordinary journey comes to the stage in a moving and intimate new musical about a life lived in the glow of the spotlight and in the shadow of addiction. Starring Michael Wartella (Chasing Rainbows) as Dion, Christy Altomare (Anastasia), and Joey McIntyre (Wicked, Waitress, New Kids on the Block). Choreographed by Sarah O’Gleby and directed by Emmy nominated producer and director Kenneth Ferrone.
Also, here's info on the theater's Covid protocols (proof of vaccination and mask wearing is required right now):
