Pop teen idol David Cassidy continues to trail blaze in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse

                      One of pop culture's most celebrated teen idols and superstar of stage, screen and the Las Vegas Strip, David Cassidy is more than just a trailblazing singer, actor, songwriter and guitarist.  He has become a cultural symbol for an entire generation of music-lovers.  Throughout the ‘70s, Cassidy sold more than 25 million records, garnered multiple Grammy® nominations, won a Golden Globe Award, registered 18 Gold and Platinum recordings (including four consecutive Multi-Platinum releases), played to sold-out crowds around the world and became the highest-paid solo performer by the age of 21. The Partridge Family star who gave us “How Can I Be Sure”, “I Think I Love You” (best-selling song of 1971), “Cherish”, “Rock Me Baby”, “Hurt So Bad” and many more chart-topping tunes will be in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, June 1, at 8 p.m. Special guest is Jay Nash, a singer/songwriter who has sold more than 25,000 albums and appeared with Maroon 5, Keb Mo and Katy Perry. An AllShows.com VIP Party Pass ($25 addt'l per person) is available for this show and includes a pre-show cocktail party 6:30 – 7:15 p.m. with open bar, hors-d’oeuvre and priority parking. This concert is part of the Guinness Black Lager Rock Series.

                      David Cassidy has managed to stay at the top of his game for more than four decades, with a unique ability to adapt to numerous genres, from concerts to theater and television to Las Vegas. David rose to stardom in The Partridge Family and became the biggest TV and performing phenomenon in history by the time he was 20. In 1972, Cassidy’s Houston Astrodome concert was standing room only in back-to-back nights, thrilling 112 thousand fans. In 1973, he filled Wembley Stadium in London six times in three days, a record that not even the Rolling Stones have been able to emulate.

                  From television to recording and record-breaking concert tours, from Broadway and London’s West End to Las Vegas, David Cassidy has made his mark and been lauded with nominations and awards in each arena. He has certainly proven that it is talent, creativity and tenacity that keep people coming to see him. His 2004 CD, Then and Now, was in the Top Five and reached Platinum status.

                In addition to the superstardom he has enjoyed as a singer, songwriter and producer, David still thinks of himself as an actor whose credits range from the phenomenal success of The Partridge Family to the telefilm “A Chance to Live”, the highest rated Police Story in its seven year history, which earned him an Emmy nomination as Best Dramatic Actor. Never one to rest on his laurels, he went to Broadway where he starred in the original production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”.

                      London beckoned to David, and he starred next at the prestigious West End in Time with Sir Laurence Olivier. In 1994, he once again broke box office records in the stunning and highly lauded production of “Blood Brothers” on Broadway, working for the first time with his real life brother Shaun. In 1996, David took on his next challenge and moved to Las Vegas to star at the MGM Grand in the $75 million extravaganza “EFX”. Under David’s creative direction and re-vamp, it became the most successful production in Las Vegas and was voted “Best Production Show” with David earning “Best All Around Performer” and “Best Singer.” In 1999, David was again named “Best All Around Performer,” “Entertainer of the Year” and “Show Star of the Year” for “The Rat Pack Is Back!”, which he created and produced with Emmy Award winning writer-producer Don Reo.
