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.
