PLAN DATE: SUN / MAR. 31
You’ll have a blast at this sweet 1950’s rom-com that takes a cute quartet to its most touching, lovable level—Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy perform the most iconic songs of the 50s and 60s in a high school prom setting that goes deeper than just that. This small, intimate show covers women of substance, the meaning of music, betrayal, disappointment and dead dreams, with a charming score to move it along and wonderful, impressive choreography that takes olympic precision and expertise to execute the way these actors do. It’s a cute, but profound, jukebox musical that’s perfect for an afternoon date with your person on a lazy Sunday.
Around since 1986, Parisian restaurant Chez Josephine, in tribute to the famous jazz singer, Josephine Baker, has become a before-and-after Broadway tradition, with charming, ornate decor and a delicious French-American menu that entrances the senses and creates an experience every bit as enchanting as the show you just left. The blue tin ceiling, red velvet walls, chandeliers, and vintage portraits set a perfect scene for the decadent cuisine: escargots a la bourguignonne, steak tartare with quail egg, and Chinese ravioli. It’s the kind of fancy, delicate spread you want to savor after a Broadway show spent leaning on each other’s shoulders and linking arms.
