Take a trip back in time with the Golden Apple’s Marvelous Wonderettes.
By Kay Kipling
The show, written and directed by Roger Bean, has been a hit elsewhere, and it’s easy to see why. Bean has tied together a slew of songs, from Dream Lover to It’s My Party to Mr. Sandman to Respect, with a slight but affectionate storyline about four girls performing on prom night and then, in Act II, at their 10-year high school reunion. Their characters are differentiated just enough to give the actresses portraying them something to hang their hats on.
