Before The Beatles told the world to 'shake it up, baby' or The McCoys asked Sloopy to 'hang on', one man dreamed about being known. In the 1960s, Bert Berns was one of the most successful songwriters of his time, producing 51 hits in just 7 years. At the age of 38, Bert Berns died at the height of his career, leaving behind his children, his legend, and music that would live on forever. Piece of My Heart tells Bert's triumphant and tragic story through the eyes of Jessie, the daughter he never knew. Experience what Rolling Stone calls "one of the great untold stories of rock and roll." This world-premiere musical pulls you into a journey of discovery told through his chart-topping hits (and some rare gems) including "Twist and Shout," "I Want Candy," "Hang on Sloopy," and the immortal title song, "Piece of My Heart." Meet the man you never knew through the music you've loved for years.
