In Roger Bean's on-the-road revue, Route 66, six velvet-voiced mechanics live out their musical dreams as they journey sonically from the 1950s to the 1960s. Arranged by jukebox musical auteur Roger Bean (The Marvelous Wonderettes), the nostalgic toe-tapper kicks off with the eager-to-please "Texaco Star Theme," recalling a time when the car was king and grease monkeys had the decency to hide their tails. More than two dozen hits fill out the performance, from the brushed drums and tumbleweeding guitar of Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again" to the surf rock of Ronnie and the Daytonas' "Little GTO." As they transition through the years, the versatile musicians take on a number of vagabond personalities, most notably a lonesome trucker serenading the "Girl on the Billboard" and a wistful cowboy remembering those "Oklahoma Hills" where he was born. In a rave review, Scott Morgan of the Daily Herald marveled at the boys' instrumental prowess, saying "Director/choreographer Stacey Flaster certainly hit the jackpot in assembling a super-talented cast with plenty of charisma who can sing and play most anything."

We all loved 'Route 66' ... The entire cast is extremely talented, and not bad on the eyes either.
