Created, written, and originally directed by Roger Bean, The Marvelous Wonderettes is a musical trip down memory lane to the 1958 Springfield High School prom. There, we meet The Wonderettes, four girls whose hopes and dreams are recounted through 20 chart-topping hits of the era.
The Off-Broadway revival is directed by Michael and Tom D’Angora, with choreography by Alex Ringler and music direction by Benjamin Rauhala. The creative team is rounded out by Billy Davis (sets), Lois Catanzaro (lights), Jen Bullock (wigs), Marty Thomas (wig supervisor), Brendan McCann (props), and Krystal Roccaro (stage manager). Tom D’Angora produces.
