For the second season in a row, Ralph Meranto of JCC CenterStage and Sandy Foster of the Harley School are debuting the world premiere of a musical production. Following the success of last season's sell out "The Hit Factory," the original 10-member-cast and creative crew returns for "The Hit Factory 2." This show is again focused on New York City's renowned Brill Building and the hits it churned out in the 1950's and 60's, with more emphasis on the later decade. Audience members can expect to hear beloved songs from The Monkees, Neil Diamond, Paul Simon, Carole King, and more.
"The Hit Factory 2" will run Saturday, February 6, through Sunday, February 21, at the JCC CenterStage, 1200 Edgewood Avenue. 8 p.m. on Saturdays; 2 p.m. on Sundays; and 7 p.m. on Thursdays. There's an additional 2 p.m. show on Saturday, February 20. $27-$29. 461-2000; jccrochester.org.
