Mendez joins a cast that currently includes Kirsten Bracken as Suzy, Christina DeCicco as Cindy Lou and Misty Cotton as Missy. Mendez, who was recently seen in Everyday Rapture at Second Stage Theatre, played the role of Jan in the recent Broadway revival of Grease.

Wonderettes, according to press notes, "features the iconic sounds of the '50s and '60s 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." Songs included in the new show 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."

The creative team includes writer-director Roger Bean, set designer Mike Carnahan, costume and wig designer Bobby Pearce, lighting designer Jeremy Pivnick, sound designer Cricket S. Myers, musical director Michael Borth and choreographer Janet Miller.

David Elzer, Peter Schneider and Marvelous NYC, LLC are presenting the Off-Broadway run.

The Westside Theatre is located in Manhattan at 407 West 43rd Street. Tickets, priced $75, are available by visiting or calling (212) 239-6200.
