Leader Of The Pack

(1985)┬áBased on an original concept by Melanie Mintzwith, this jukebox musical (created before the term was coined) celebrates the life and times of the Brooklyn-born Greenwich, whose doo-wop sounds skyrocketed to the top of the pop charts in the early to mid-1960s. Beatts’ “liner notes” serve as the book that link the songs and provide a look into the songwriter’s professional triumphs and personal misfortunes.
