Piece Of My Heart to Premiere Off-Broadway

Piece Of My Heart


A new musical about the life and career of Songwriter Bert Berns called Piece Of My Heart will premiere Off Broadway at the Irene Diamond Stage at the Pershing Square Signature Center this Summer. Previews will begin on 25 Jun 2014 with an official opening set for 21 Jul 2014.

The production features a book by Daniel Goldfarb, with direction and choreography by Denis Jones. The creative team also includes Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), David Woolard (Costume Design), Ben Stanton (Lighting Design), Carl Casella (Sound Design), Garry Sherman (Music Supervision & Orchestrations) and Lon Hoyt (Music Direction). Piece Of My Heart is produced by Merged Work Productions and Jack Thomas.

Synopsis: Bert Berns was born in New York in 1929 and died tragically of a heart attack at just 38 years of age. But in his short career, Berns left an indelible mark on popular music; he made fifty-one pop chart singles in seven years and became one of the most successful songwriters of the 1960s. Piece Of My Heart tells his remarkable story, once dubbed by Rolling Stone "one of the great untold stories of rock and roll," through his hit songs, which include "Twist and Shout," "Tell Him," "I Want Candy," “Hang On Sloopy,” "Cry, Baby," and many more.

Casting and booking dates will be announced shortly.
