About The Marvelous Wonderettes

This Off-Broadway hit takes us to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet and learn about the lives and loves of Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. When the Wonderettes reunite to perform at their 10-year reunion, we learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring more than 30 classic 50s and 60s hits, including “Lollipop,” “Mr. Sandman,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “It’s my Party,” and “Respect,” The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!
