How was your experience?
Based on the movie of 1988, (based on the book 1985), Beaches follows a life-long friendship of BFF's CeeCee and Bertie. I mistakenly expected the musical to be sad from the onset, simply because I had forgotten much of the movie. So, I was pleasantly surprised to see all the chapters of relationship from being pen-pals and later roommates, to having feelings for the same guy. All done with good humor and song. I only wished for the song "Wind Beneath My Wings" to be a bigger production. The actors all do a fine job, but it's tall order to follow Bette Midler.
