Hartford Stage does not sell or distribute tickets to outside vendors for resale. Any other company that offers to sell you a Hartford Stage ticket is a ticket broker and is not affiliated with Hartford Stage. Ticket brokers tend to charge exorbitant mark-ups. In addition to paying more, if there is a problem with your order, and you have purchased tickets from anyone other than our box office at 860-527-5151 or www.hartfordstage.org, Hartford Stage cannot help you.

In the summer of ’63, against the wishes of his father, Brooklyn teenager Jeffrey Winnick leaves behind his blue-collar roots for an exciting job working as a cabana boy at the colorful El Flamingo — a posh private club on Long Island. There, Jeffrey meets Karla, a forward-thinking young woman from California. The music, the romance, the beach are magical — until tensions grow between father and son when a slick club member takes Jeffrey under his wing.
