Remember My Boyfriend’s Back, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, It’s My Party, Where the Boys Are, Wishin’ and Hopin’, Respect, Proud Mary, and Me and Bobby McGee? These are only a few of the songs performed by talented students in this rollicking rendition of popular music when the beehive hairstyle was the rage. This evening of entertainment brings back fond memories for those who experienced the 1960’s and gives a wonderful and colorful description of the period to the younger generation.
Diana Amos, assistant professor of music at Columbia College, is director of BEEHIVE, which was created by Larry Gallagher and first presented in 1985 as an Off-Broadway production. It toured nationally for 20-weeks including 13-weeks at Harrah’s Marina Hotel in Atlantic City. According to The New York Times, the production is “pure irresistible fun. What Grease did for the 50’s, Beehive does for the 60’s.”
