A fun, frothy flashback to the fabulous females of 1960s' pop music, "Beehive" features non-stop hits from early-decade bubble gum classics to the explosive late 1960s' soul sound.
Paying tribute to performers such as Lesley Gore, The Shirelles, Brenda Lee, Tina Turner, The Supremes, Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin, this irresistible revue will fly the audience back in time to experience firsthand the music that thrilled a generation.
