You can expect singing, dancing, corny jokes, scantily clad men and women and eyerolling (I mean that in a good way) sexual innuendo. If you’ve ever seen Beach Party (or any of the 1960s Beach Party movies) then just imagine that, only live, and more fun.
The songs are great fun, and accompanied by a live band. In fact, my only complaint about the piece is that I found it hard to hear the singers over the band. I was only in the third row, so I would worry that even more would be lost further back. That said, I’m sure putting microphones on a bunch of folks in bikinis and tight swim trunks would be a bit of a technical challenge, so I can understand why there weren’t any.
The show is a delightful romp. As long as you aren’t going in expecting anything enlightening or thought-provoking, I think you’ll have a good time. It’s definitely worth checking out.
