Why Do Fools Fall in Love?
It’s 1966, and Millie’s about to get married. Her best friends—the mousy Florence, the boisterous Dee Dee, and “professional serial dater” Sally—gather to throw her a proper bachelorette party. But after much sugar and even more booze, the girlfriends become loose-lipped about their love lives and unleash secrets that could challenge their belief in romance, and their bonds of friendship.
From Roger Bean, creator of joyous flashback musicals such as The Marvelous Wonderettes and The Andrews Brothers, Why Do Fools Fall in Love? is both a heartwarming comedy about solidarity and a jaunty journey through the jukebox hits of the ’60s. Accompanied by springy choreography that takes its moves from girl groups such as Martha and The Vandellas and the Supremes, it inspires audiences to dance in the aisles and sculpt their seatmate’s hair into a beehive as the gal-pals perform classics including “He’s a Rebel,” “I Will Follow Him,” and the unanswerable title song.
Media Theatre For The Performing Arts
“Theater that sings!” That’s the motto of Media Theatre For The Performing Arts, and for fans of musical theater, that’s a relief. No sullen one-act plays, heady performance-art pieces, or lengthy meditations on tongue twisters here—simply musicals that put a spring in the step of patrons. Beginning as a movie house in 1927 with a prophetic screening of The Jazz Singer, the Theatre has evolved into a melodic haven that puts on up to five new and classic productions a year. Along with nurturing imaginations and enhancing community culture, Media Theatre is also practically a college of the musical-theater arts, inspiring youth to carry the craft on to future generations. And its efforts haven’t gone unnoticed: year after year the Media racks up reader’s poll awards for “Best Live Theater” in Delaware county. Recently, the theatre was awarded the 2012 and 2013 the Broadway World-Philadelphia award for best theatre company in Philadelphia, walking away with a total of twelve awards.
