The “Crooning Crabcakes” are the boys banned as prom entertainers, making way for the girls. They’re still dreaming of the big time, hoping to make their break via a local radio contest. The show, created by Roger Bean who dreamed up the Wonderettes, is another trip down a musical memory lane with classic tunes including “Runaround Sue,” “Tears on My Pillow,” “Unchained Melody,” “Earth Angel” and “Stay (Just a Little Bit Longer.” Will the boys outsell the girls? It could happen. Through May 20. $36-$42. Ensemble Theatre, 1127 Vine St., Over-the-Rhine. 513-421-3555.
