Summer of love
Jun 22 - July 16, 2011
Flowers were work in the hair at the east coast premier of Summer of Love, a groovy new musical by Roger Bean, the creator of The Marvelous Wonderettes and The Andrews Brothers, with choreography by Lee Martino. When a runaway bride discovers the counter-cultural revolution of the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, with a little help from the hippies and dropouts of Golden Gate Park, she comes to realize she has to make her own kind of music! This hippie, trippy musical featured the powerful music of the late 1960s, by some of the most influential artists of the love generation: The Mamas and the Papas, Donovan, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and many more. With such hits as "Crystal Blue Persuasion," "Make Your Own Kind of Music," "San Francisco" and so many more! A flower-power, feel-good musical experience! A wild trip!
