Trip of Love
Clips from the Osaka world premiere
Bikini babes ride a wave onto the sand. Leather-clad greasers snap their fingers across the stage. Loveniks in fur-lined vests lean against giant psychedelic mushrooms. These are just a few of the sights seen by the young woman who falls down a rabbit hole of ’60s culture in Trip of Love, a psychedelic romp that celebrates free love, tie-dye, and rock ‘n’ roll. But it’s not just the hippies on parade—the show struts through every cultural movement of the decade as squares sway to “Moon River,” mods declare “These Boots are Made for Walkin’,” and beehived girl groups showcase a new style of music called R&B.
Making its North American debut, this jukebox musical brings the flower era to life via elaborate sets and costumes. Those come courtesy of a pair of Tony-winners—set designer Robin Wagner cut his teeth on such iconic ’60s musicals as Hair, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Dreamgirls, and took home three awards out of his 10 nominations. Likewise, costume designer Gregg Barnes— best known for his period-accurate wardrobes—nabbed Tonys for the 1920s musical The Drowsy Chaperone and the era-spanning Follies.
