ARCHIVE / ‘SASSY’ WONDERETTES OWN NORTH PARK
COSTUMES OVER THE TOP--“The Marvelous Wonderettes” grabbed a review from the UT’s theatre writer James Hebert that matched the enthusiasm of the 50s & 60s retro musical now playing at the North Park Birch Theatre, 29th & University. Running through Feb 26, the opening live production of the San Diego Musical Theatre is “sassy” according to Hebert.
Hebert likes the show that includes more than 30 hits from the 50s & 60s. And, he also has high praise for the four stars of the production calling them “…strong performers all. (And all veterans of the show’s off-Broadway staging)..."
Mark your calendars: “The Marvelous Wonderettes” Feb. 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, at 8 pm; Feb. 18, 19, 26, at 2 pm.
Make a night of it in North Park. Hot live musical; fabulous new and established restaurants (Urbn Pizza/Bar, Ritual, Linkery, Wang’s, Casa de Luz, Smoking Goat, Alexanders, Sea Rocket, Carnitas Shack and plenty of Asian fusion around. For cocktail action afterwards hit Toronado, Urbn , West Coast Tavern, True North and the slinky Bar Pink. And dessert at nearby Heaven Sent or Claire de Lune coffee.
