Run of Show

“70, Girls, 70” ran March 10 – 25, 2000 Thursday through Saturday at 8:00pm, Sunday at 2:00pm


From the same creative genius that gave us Flora, The Red Menace, Chicago, and Cabaret comes 70, Girls, 70. What happens when the hotel that has been home to the elderly is scheduled for demolition with no apparent salvation? The elderly become thieves to support and save their home! With a wonderful score, great dance numbers and good cheer, it’s 70, Girls, 70.
