Great cast. Young and energetic. Music related well to the story and the voices were beautiful. Dialogue was clear and understandable. Staging and lighting were superb. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The creator of The Andrews Brothers and The Marvelous Wonderettes now brings audiences all the groovy music of the late 1960s as we follow Holly, a runaway bride to the Haight-Ashbury, where she learns to make her own kind of music! Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair; it’s gonna be a real trip!
