Darin was the soundtrack of cool when he appeared on the scene in the 1950’s and was one of the most popular teen idols with his career when it took off with hits like Splish Splash, Dream Lover, Beyond the Sea, and Mack the Knife. Michael Mathews, his wife Jessica, and a dance troupe of four wow their audiences with a recreation of that era with their nightclub floorshow presentation complete with multiple costume changes. The show actually gives a accounting of Darin’s career complete with the ups and downs, and finally his untimely death at the age of 37. Thanks to Michael Mathews and his cast for a wonderful experience!
