News   PHOTO CALL: A First Look at The Marvelous Wonderettes
 
As previously announced, the Off-Broadway production of The Marvelous Wonderettes will begin previews at the Westside Theatre Aug. 29 with a scheduled opening date of Sept. 14.

Written and directed by Roger Bean, the Wonderettes will consist of Farah Alvin (Nine, The Look of Love, Saturday Night Fever) as Missy, Beth Malone (Ring of Fire) as Betty Jean, Bets Malone as Suzy (originated this role at Milwaukee Repertory Theatre) and Victoria Matlock (national tours of Wicked and Evita) as Cindy Lou.

The show, according to press notes, "features the iconic sounds of the fifties and sixties in a journey back to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where the Wonderettes — Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy — are four young girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts."

A sampling of tunes included in the work are "Lollipop," "Dream Lover," "Stupid Cupid," "Lipstick on Your Collar," "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me," "It's My Party" and "It's in His Kiss."
