This week, Paul goes behind the curtain with the actor/musicians playing the iconic music of Simon & Garfunkel in the wonderful musical review of the duo’s greatest hits and much more, in The Simon & Garfunkel Story playing at the Broadway Playhouse through December 8th. Taylor Bloom (Paul Simon) and Ben Cooley (Art Garfunkel) look and sound the parts. If you grew up with Simon and Garfunkel, you will not be disappointed that every hit song you hope to hear is performed by this duo and their band. From Sounds of Silence to Bridge Over Troubled Water, you will be filled with nostalgia and will surely be Feelin’ Groovy! If you are new to this music duo, you are certain to become a fan.
