Fool in Love: The Frankie Lymon Story


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 “ABC’s of Love”, "Fool in Love" is the musical soundtrack of Frankie Lymon’s life.
