Old School Hits Come to Life at “Beehive: The ’60s Musical”

May 12, 2017 8:00 am

The production of Beehive: The '60s Musical required approximately 40 wigs and 25 cans of hairspray. If you head to the Phoenix Theatre to see it, you'll understand why—and most likely agree that the resources were well-used. This fun, raucous tribute to '60s music recreates classics by some of the era's best songstresses.

The cast represents the likes of Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, and The Supremes in their professionally choreographed numbers. The show is playing at the Phoenix Theatre through June 4th, so you have plenty of opportunities to check it out. Tickets vary based on where you sit and the performance you select, but they start around $36.
