When Bob Cilman and residents of a Massachusetts housing project formed Young@Heart in 1982, the chorus's material tended toward such age-appropriate fare as "Yes, We Have No Bananas." They soon discovered that it was a lot more interesting to transform "youth" music into ironic, plangent, and sometimes even optimistic commentary on aging. The group, which ranges in age from 73 to 91, is presenting a new show, "End of the Road," the final part of a trilogy. They'll break your heart with songs such as the Pixies' "Monkey Gone to Heaven" and the Traveling Wilburys' "Handle With Care."
