The highly anticipated UK and European Premiere of Off-Broadway smash-hit comedy musical The Marvelous Wonderettes is being produced at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village, from 9 April until 12 May 2019, with Press Night on 11 April 2019 at 7.30pm.
Written and created by Roger Bean, the multi-award winning show opened in New York at the Waterside Theatre in 2008 to outstanding critical acclaim. It takes a cotton-candied musical trip down memory lane to the 1958 Springfield High School Prom, where we meet The Wonderettes: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. The show follows their lives and loves from Prom Night to their 10-year Reunion.
This musical features over thirty hit songs from the 1950s and 1960s by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Neil Sedaka, Connie Francis and Dusty Springfield, including “Stupid Cupid”, “Son of a Preacher Man”, “I Only Wanna be with You”, “Secret Love”, “Lipstick on your Collar”, “Respect”, “Rescue Me”, “Dream Lover” and “Heatwave”.
Casting and Creative Team to be announced.
