Grab your pompoms or dig out that letterman jacket -- it's time for The Marvelous Wonderettes: Caps and Gowns, the sequel to the off-Broadway smash hit The Marvelous Wonderettes. The four varsity songleaders of Springfield High -- Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy -- are enjoying their last year of high school, with hopes as high as their hair and dreams as large as their crinoline skirts. As they prepare for Missy's marriage to Mr. Lee, soak up gorgeous four-part harmony arrangements of some of the best music written in the '50s and '60s, including "River Deep -- Mountain High," "At the Hop," "Rock Around the Clock" and more than 20 other classic hits.

Quotes & Highlights
“Bill Oberst as Grizzard is uncanny …marvelous” —Mark Morgan
“The audience laughed ‘till they cried…funny and touching." —The Times
“For all intents and purposes, Oberst is Grizzard.” —Birmingham News
Four wives, 450 daily newspapers, millions of fans, hundreds of concerts, oceans of vodka, thousands of prayers, and at the beginning and the end of it all, Moreland, Georgia. Always Moreland, the tiny town that time forgot and Lewis embellished. It was his Mayberry, his Lake Wobegon. Like Twain before him, Lewis Grizzard used the sense of his youth to weave tales that were always truth and even when they weren’t exactly fact.
