Benny’s is Back

The Empire Revue presents: Benny's the Musical.

Say it ain’t so. Benny’s is back for two nights only. Yup, that’s right. The Empire Revue is proud to present an original musical in celebration of one of Rhody’s most beloved (and sorely missed) shopping spots. Just last year, the hometown favorite closed all thirty-one locations after ninety-three years of operation.

According to a press release, Benny’s the Musical, tells the tale of the local Benny’s stores, the people who loved shopping there, and most importantly, the people who worked there and made it the Ocean State staple that it was. With more than a dozen original new songs, this parody (not endorsed by the former family-run business) is set to take stage in the historic Columbus Theatre in Providence on May 25-26.

Now it wouldn’t be a Benny’s remembrance without everyones favorite jingle – sing it with me! Benny’s, Benny’s, it’s the store I love to explore. Benny’s, Benny’s…Benny’s is my favorite store. (I know you sang it!).
