Review from Linda R.

Decent history of the Andrew Sisters. Musicians/actors all good. Fun. Don't think one has to know much about the era to enjoy it, but those over 50 will probably find more to smile/laugh at than those under. Sound system very good.

Review from Rina Frezza

Great Show. Not really my era but I enjoyed it very much. The singing was excellent. I learned alot about the sisters. This theatre is a real great place to see a show, close to the stage, comfortable seating, lots of legroom, not a bad seat in...continued

Review from Forrest Lindwall

Great show in a terrific venue--obviously for the more senior set that would recognize WW II--the big one as Archie Bunker used to say.

Musical Arrangements by Raymond Berg

They sold more than 90 million records, nine of them gold. They had more Top Ten hits than the Beatles or Elvis and they are still one of the best-selling female vocal groups of all time. Audiences will understand why when they see Sisters of Swing: The Story of the Andrews Sisters.

This book musical follows sisters LaVerne, Maxene and Patty Andrews from their early days on the road through their rise as recording stars to entertaining American G.I.’s overseas to dissembling over differences. The score intermingles over twenty hit songs like “Bei Mir Bist Du Schon,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” This show goes beyond the ordinary to offer a unique perspective into these women as human beings, showing how the events of their lives shaped who they became to the rest of the world.

In its short history, Sisters of Swing has charmed and sold out theaters in Minnesota, Wisconsin, New York, Florida, Texas, Georgia, Oregon, Indiana, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
