Full Synopsis

After being paralyzed by polio as a child, Jerome Felder renamed himself Doc Pomus,
reinventing himself first as a blues singer and then as one of American popular music’s
greatest songwriters, writing classics like, ‘Save the Last Dance for Me,’ ‘This Magic
Moment,’ ‘A Teenager in Love,’ and ‘Viva Las Vegas.’ AKA DOC POMUS brings to life Doc’s
joyous, romantic, heartbreaking, and extraordinarily eventful journey.
