Breaking Up Is Hard To Doby Erik Jackson & Ben H. Winters
Featuring the songs of Neil SedakaMusical
It's Labor Day Weekend in 1960. Marge and her stagestruck best friend Lois arrive at Esther's Paradise Resort in the Catskills on a vacation that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon — but the groom has left her at the altar. Lois does her best to console Marge and comes up with a plan to set her up with Del Delmonaco, the resort's handsome but self-obsessed singer who mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can get him on American Bandstand and make him the next teen heartthrob. Then there's Gabe, the geekish handyman and aspiring songwriter, always looking forlornly on — and of course Harvey, the Borscht Belt comic who for years has secretly carried a torch for the widowed Esther. Breaking Up Is Hard To Do is a heartwarming throwback to a simpler time infused with great Neil Sedaka tunes.

About the Majestic
Locally-produced professional live theater since 1997
Before it was a live theater, local residents may remember the Majestic Theater as a movie house. It has since been renovated and reimagined to bring live performances to the West Springfield area, giving local performance and technical artists the opportunity to thrive.
Every season at the Majestic consists of five productions (including at least one musical) featuring local actors. In addition to the subscription season, the summer includes children's theater, concerts, plays, open mic nights, and improvisational comedy shows.
Recently named the best place to see live theater in the Pioneer Valley in the Valley Advocate Readers' Poll, the Majestic continues to offer great theater thanks to the support and generosity of its subscribers (we currently have over 4,800). Learn how you can become a subscriber today!
