The Dayton Playhouse is excited to kick off 2018 with BeeHive: The 60’s Musical created by Larry Gallagher which runs through Feb. 4.
What better way to warm up those mid-winter blues than celebrating the female musicians of the 1960’s with such classics as “My Boyfriend’s Back” and “Me and Bobby McGee.” Beehive runs chronologically through the 1960’s beginning with the beehive hairdos of girl groups (the Chiffons, the Shirelles and the Supremes) and wrapping up with the solo work of Janis Joplin, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin.
The musical revue of the female artists of the 1960’s will have the audience wanting to sing along and reminisce. The days of miniskirts, transistor radios, juke boxes and flower power will come rushing back as Beehive slides nostalgically through the decade. The Washington Times said, “This hit-parade revue swings from the sweet sounds of the Supremes to Janis Joplin’s heart-rending rasp. From the Aquanet coiffures of the start of the decade to the flowing hippie locks of the Vietnam era, it’s all about the hair, baby.”
Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 pm and Sunday shows at 2 pm.
