is pleased to announce that we will be hosting 2 of the last 3
performances by the world
renowned Canadian band The Musical Box performing Genesis’
landmark progressive rock concept album “The Lamb Lies Down on
Broadway” at the Center Theater in Whittier. After this they
will be retiring this production forever. If you have ever been a Genesis fan but you have never
heard of The Musical Box, I invite you to go to our web site, look at the
photos and watch the videos. This is not a Genesis “tribute” band as
much as it is a theatrical re-creation of the historic “Lamb” tour
from the 70’s. It was Peter Gabriel’s swan song with the band and it
was full of costume changes and special visual effects as well as some of
the most captivating music ever written. This is the only production
licensed by Peter Gabriel and Genesis, and they use the original 3 screen
slide show from the tour. Even if you saw the original tour (as I did, at
the Shrine Auditorium), this is a chance to see it WITHOUT all the
technical snafu’s that plagued the original live run. If you never saw Genesis in
their prime, this is the closest you will ever get. It’s like stepping
into a musical time machine.
the end of a 2 year world
tour of this show. Don’t miss this opportunity to see them in a small
(400 seats), intimate, classical theater setting, as it was MEANT to be seen.
On behalf of the entire CalProg staff, we look forward to seeing you
at this monumental production!
