Some of the women in this musical definitely need to see Jenny Craig and Lifestyle lift. Their appearance detracted from the show. Costumes falling down under other costumes, boots and costumes not fitting properly, I have seen high school plays...continued

Yesterday was the closing show so my feedback won't really help anyone... But it was fun and the music brought back a lot of memories.

Description

Celebrate an era of love and rock ‘n’ roll with this fun-filled musical. Beehive, The ’60s Musical takes a journey through the look, sound and feeling of the girl groups and soloists of the 1960s. The show will leave audiences humming with such memorable hits as “The Name Game,” “It’s My Party,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Downtown,” “To Sir With Love,” “One Fine Day,” “You Don’t Own Me,” “R-E-S-P-E-C-T,” “Where The Boys Are,” “The Beat Goes On,” “Natural Woman” and many more.

This production features the amazing wig design of Broadway’s Jason Hayes. Prior to his recent design and supervision of the 75th Anniversary Radio City Christmas Spectacular, Hayes was in Johannesburg, South Africa, last fall, teaching his companies wig designs for the opening of Hairspray in South Africa. He was up for consideration for nomination for the 2005 Oscar for makeup & hair for his wig & trans makeup designs for Felicity Huffman in the movie Transamerica. Hayes was the key hair stylist for the Fab 5 on Season III of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. His designs for Beehive will make audiences laugh with their gravity-defying ability and spectacularly classic 1960s beauty.
