Ricky Nelson Remembered
- The show: a multimedia journey through the career of Ricky Nelson, performed by his twin sons Matthew and Gunnar
- Those names sound familiar: because the boys scored major hits in the early ’90s with their own rock outfit—the aptly named “Nelson”
- Do the Nelson twins still have their long, blonde manes?: no
- The songs: “Hello, Mary Lou,” “Poor Little Fool,” and “Travelin’ Man”
- The sights: big screens displaying classic TV footage, home movies, and interviews with artists influenced by Ricky
- Where you might have first seen Ricky Nelson: on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, playing to fields of screaming teenage fans
- Cool Ricky Nelson fact: he’s still one of the only artists to have a number-one song, number-one TV show, and number one-movie in the same week
- Matthew and Gunnar Nelson songs that will also be played: “(I Can’t Live Without Your) Love & Affection,” “After the Rain”
- Extra perk: you get to meet the twins after the show and pour Miracle Grow on their heads<p>
Stamford’s Palace Theatre
At the heart of Stamford Center for the Arts is The Palace Theatre, hailed as “Connecticut’s Most Magnificent” when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. The opulence caught the eye of the community, leading the Stamford Advocate to proclaim “HUNDREDS TURNED AWAY, UNABLE TO OBTAIN TICKETS, AS THE NEW PALACE THEATRE OPENS DOORS.”
Although today’s tickets are easier to obtain thanks to technology, the cultural fervor surrounding The Palace continues. Audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony and the Ballet School of Stamford. However, the venue also keeps its vaudevillian roots firmly planted by hosting comedians, musical acts, and surgeries on ventriloquist dummies atop its massive stage.<p>
