Leader of The Pack: The Ellie Greenwich Musical is packs together favorite songs such as "Chapel of Love," "Da Do Ron Ron," "Be My Baby," "Hanky Panky," Do Wah Diddy," "And Then He Kissed Me" and, of course, the title song in a musical retrospective that celebrates the life and times of songwriter Ellie Greenwich, whose doo wop sounds skyrocketed to the top of the sixties charts. The story of Ellie's rise to fame and fortune is punctuated with the virtual Hit Parade of her music and familiar talented names from the era.
