Penned by Molly Bell and Daya Curley, the musical Becoming Britney explores the effect of fame on a real-life pop phenom, a young celebrity whose early successes launched her tumultuous career. Bell dons a Southern accent as she assumes the titular role, shaking hips to original numbers laced with emotional ups and downs and satirical lyrics. Skilled performers round out a cast teeming with colorful real-life characters including old boyfriends, managers, and cadre of singing postmen. Attendees can relax beforehand in the Retro Dome’s Lava Lounge, a dimly lit cavern adorned with lava lamps and 1960s-inspired décor. Free parking ensures that vehicles can plant themselves nearby while they anxiously await the return of their owners and try to shoot strangers with windshield-wiper fluid.

The Retro Dome

When The Retro Dome first opened its doors three years ago, it was with the knowledge that its life would be brief and yet explosive. From the start, the owners of the building planned to demolish it at some point in the future. Yet that didn’t stop the staff from making use of the former Century 25 Theater’s stadium-style seating, refurbished chairs, and massive dome. They decked out the interior with vintage, retro-modern décor, complete with a candy counter slinging Pop Rocks and JujuBees. The foreseeable, yet fuzzy ending has recently come into sharp focus, though. The Retro Dome will go dark on January 31, 2013, bringing to an end nearly four years of live music and sing-along cinema.
