Shangri La

A musical by Rob Urbinati
Directed by Michael Goldfried
Choreography by Gabrielle Lansner
Musical Direction by Brandon Lowry


Queens Theater in the Park
December 2006
New York City


The fictionalized story of The Shangri-Las, the girl group made famous by their hit song “The Leader of the Pack”. The story of three very different girls from Corona Queens in the turbulent 1960’s who rise to the top of the charts and are forever changed.

“Directed with gathering momentum by Michael Goldfried, the show reminds us more of the Broadway hit Jersey Boys than the girl-group revue Beehive…A slice of jukebox heaven!”
