BEEHIVE: THE 60s MUSICAL at Broadway Palm Dinner Theater is a tribute to the iconic female voices of the 1960s. The show takes you through the decade and the evolution of women in music throughout it.
It’s such a fun show. From all the catchy music and slower, more powerful songs to all the energetic dances, this is a show filled with lively entertainment. Director and choreographer Amy Marie McCleary did an incredible job with this production. Honestly, it feels like it goes by so fast because you enjoy song after song.
This production stars Emma Benson, Hallie D. Chapman, Nicole Esposito, Charis Michelle Gullage, Martina Long and Victoria Morris. Each of these women are so talented and it was a pleasure to watch them play. Their vocals were so loud and I loved seeing them perform well known songs from infamous singers such as Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin and Carole King. They were joined by an excellent orchestra on stage, led by music director Loren Strickland on keyboard, and it has even more energy.
I was also very impressed with the number of costumes and wigs involved in this show. John P. White and Brandon T. Miller were the costume and wig designers respectively, and they did a great job bringing so many different looks and colors to this production.
I would definitely recommend checking out BEEHIVE while it’s filming on Broadway Palm. It’s a very empowering show, and it’s really unique and refreshing to see a tribute show that only highlights women from the 60s. With songs like “Respect”, “Proud Mary”, “Natural Woman”, “You Don’t Own Me” and more is truly a celebration of the hard-hitting singers of the time. Everyone in my performance clearly loved the show. The women in this cast are exceptional performers, and I know you’ll have the best time watching them.
