A forgotten gem of a musical, 70, Girls, 70 finds a home onstage with The Group Rep from November 10 through December 17.
The Group Rep is proud to present the first show of their 51st anniversary season, 70, GIRLS, 70, a zesty musical caper with music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, book by David Thompson and Norman L. Martin, based on the play BREATH OF SPRING by Peter Coke, adapted by Joe Masteroff, directed by Bruce Kimmel and co-produced by Doug Haverty and Suzy London.
What happens when a charming group of clever, enterprising senior citizens take matters into their own hands when their residence hotel is about to be sold? They band together and take life by the bootstraps and go to extraordinary creative measures to save their home. Along the way, they discover the value of saying “YES!” when life invites us. This long-buried gem of a musical will sparkle with its glorious, catchy music and wittily hysterical lyrics.
