Forbidden Love: The Love Story of Bobby Darin and Connie Francis

Celebrate NY Italian Heritage Month with this mini-Broadway style show, fresh from the off-broadway theaters of NYC celebrating the lives, music and tragic love story of two Italian American icons, Connie Francis and Bobby Darin. Westchester’s own, Vanessa Racci (as Connie) and Charlie Romo (as Bobby) turn the pages of these stars’ autobiographies into an unforgettable performance with true anecdotes, dialogue, singing all of their greatest hits with Broadway level musicians and performance. The show previewed on ABC7NY in 2022 and made its public debut at Green Room 42 NYC in 2023 to a sold out audience and rave reviews. Don’t miss this one night only opportunity to see it in Westchester, NY!

See what the Critics Are Saying:

“Together, these two vocalists, with a penchant for the vintage, have created a program titled FORBIDDEN LOVE: THE LOVE STORY OF BOBBY DARIN & CONNIE FRANCIS that allows them to show off superb vocals and their love for the two star-crossed lovers of their idolatry.- Stephen Mosher, Broadway World ‘23

“Both Vanessa and Charlie are strong performers and instead of doing an imitation of Bobby and Connie, they sang and cleverly weaved the story in their own style and drew the audience into the relationship between the two stars. This mini jukebox show would make a wonderful stage musical and Vanessa and Charlie could take it to great heights.”-Magda Katz Times Square Chronicles ‘23
