Going to a musical has always been a trip down memory lane for me, my mom loved musicals, I remember her always singing as she did her chores around the house.... always!
So when we have a chance to, we love going to musicals, especially ones that are meant/written to be a musical, I can remember watching West Side Story, the King and I, and Elvis movies.... as one comedian said, "he sang so well they just let him sing all his lines....."
I swear, at one point when I was a kid, it seemed to be all we watched, Beehive is that kind of musical, where the music and singing is the whole play! It's an exciting and colorful salute to the powerful female voices of the 1960s, from the earliest part of the decade of fun and innocence to the unrest of the mid ‘60s and finally to the era of women discovering their own empowerment.
This cast of talented women will have you singing along and begging for more!
Beehive brings you along a journey through song, while documenting the dramatic changes that America underwent during the ‘60s. The talented cast sang and danced to hits made popular by the Chiffons, the Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Connie Francis and much, much more, including some 40 beloved songs that take you back in time to the look, sounds and feel of the 1960s such as My Boyfriend’s Back, Son Of A Preacher Man, Me and Bobby McGee, R-E-S-P-E-C-T and so many others!
Broadway Palm is continuing to follow CDC guidelines while providing a delicious meal and exceptional entertainment in a safe and socially distanced environment. The buffet was open and fantastic, the menu a la carte was awesome, and my favorite 'Macaroon' cookies were great as usual.
It is important to note that Broadway Palm is asking guests that are not fully vaccinated to wear a face mask while not eating or drinking, but I didn't see many masks being worn.
