The Atlanta Lyric Theatre presents Beehive: The 60’s Musical by Larry Gallagher. This "rafter-raising musical" will be performed at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta, February 15 through March 3.
Beehive is a rockin’ musical celebration of the girl groups who left their mark on 60’s music and on many of our lives. Relive music’s golden era and an empowering time in history with "The Name Game," "The Beat Goes On," "Respect," "Natural Woman," "My Boyfriend’s Back," "One Fine Day," "To Sir With Love," "It’s My Party," "Proud Mary," "Downtown" and more.
Through the hits of Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Shirelles and others, six energetic women and one hot band take you on a journey through the look, the sounds and the electricity of the times. In what Time Magazine calls, "A Cherry Coke show with plenty of fizz!" Beehive: The 60’s Musical will leave audiences of all ages dancing in the aisles.
