A uniquely entertaining music and multimedia event, The Simon and Garfunkel Songbook Show chronicles the extraordinary career of Simon & Garfunkel. The music speaks for itself and is anchored by Rex Fowler, co-founder of the renowned folk/rock duo Aztec Two-Step, and his wife Dodie Pettit, an original cast member of Broadway’s greatest success story, Phantom of The Opera. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Steven Roues rounds out the music side. 

The Simon and Garfunkel Songbook Show’s storyline was originally created by Pete Fornatale, the late great pioneer of progressive FM radio and author of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bookends biography. Now narrating, emceeing and manning the multimedia show is WCWP radio host Tony Traguardo, Fornatale's dear friend and protégé, and co-founder of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. Nostalgia and laughter abound, and a sing a-long is always in the mix.

The 2019-2020 season of performing arts events at the Centenary Stage Company is made possible through the generous support of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the Sandra Kupperman Foundation, and CSC corporate sponsors, including Premiere Season Sponsor The House of the Good Shepherd, Season Sponsor Heath Village Retirement Community, Silver Sponsors Hackettstown Medical Center Atlantic Health System, Home Instead Senior Care (Washington), and Fulton Bank, and Centenary Stage Company members and supporters.
