The Marvelous Wonderettes
After two extensive Off-Broadway runs garnering outstanding critical acclaim The Marvelous Wonderettes receives its UK Premiere in this glittering new production. The show takes a cotton-candied musical trip down memory lane to the 1958 Springfield High School Prom, where we meet the Wonderettes: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! The show follows their lives and love from Prom Night to their 10-year Reunion.
The score includes over 20 chart-topping hits of the era, including Lollipop, Dream Lover, Stupid Cupid, Son of a Preacher Man, Rescue Me, Respect, Secret Love, You Don’t Owe Me, Lipstick on your Collar, Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Lucky Lips, Heatwave, I Only Wanna Be With You, It’s My Party and many more.
