I wanted to believe the hype.

I settle into my front row seat at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix.

The lights go down, the curtain goes up. The Simon & Garfunkel Story begins….

I wouldn’t say I was disappointed exactly. It just wasn’t what I was hoping for. I was looking for a true theater – style play about the lives of these two incredible singer-songwriters.

What I got was more of a monologue told by two actors looking like Art and Paul. They sang well enough, and there was some interesting tidbits they told, but I wouldn’t really call it “acting“.

On the upside though, I do love their music, and since I can’t see the originals play together, this was a close second.

As far as waxing nostalgic though, the show hit the spot, and I’ll take that.

Wench, bring my ale, what say you?
