Songs to Overthrow the Status Quo To
Before the era of #metoo and highly marketable feminist t-shirts, there was a generation of flower power women who wore their skirts short and their hair tall. Beehive: The 60’s Musical celebrates these women with songs like “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Son of a Preacher Man” this (and next) weekend at Desert Rose Playhouse. Catch the performance Friday or Saturday, June 22 and 23, at 7:30pm, on Sunday at 2pm, or at the same times every weekend through July 15. Tickets are $15 to $18 and available in advance at desertroseplayhouse.net or by calling 563-0316.
