Why See The Marvelous Wonderettes?

Musicals

A big-hearted musical

A cotton-colored, big-hearted musical lands in Detroit this April as The Marvelous Wonderettes lights up the Meadow Brook Theatre. Telling the story if four girls with big dreams, The Marvelous Wonderettes features some of the 1950's biggest hits. From "Lollipop", "Dream Lover" and "Stupid Cupid", don your crinoline skirts and get ready for this marvelous day out!

What is the marvelous wonderettes about?

We first meet Cindy Lou, Betty Jane, Missy and Suzy aka The Wonderettes at their 1958 Prom Night, performing a selection of girl group classics in front of their fellow classmates. The musical traces the next decade of the girl's lives up to their reformation in 1968, when they once again take to the stage for their high school reunion.
