Before there was Michael Jackson, Jackie Wilson, there was Frankie Lymon, a teenage musical comet that burned too soon.
Fool in Love is a sizzling tour de force performance chronicling the meteoric rise and fall of teenage musical sensation Frankie Lymon; a career that fell just as quickly as it rose. In musically chronicling the life of a teen legend, Fool in Love is a performance evening marking Frankie Lymon’s indelible imprint on American pop music. From his groundbreaking hits Why Do Fools Fall in Love, Goody Goody, and Little Bitty Pretty One to his lesser know recordings Out in the Cold and ABCs of Love, Fool in Love is the musical soundtrack of Frankie Lymon’s life.
