We really enjoyed the Marvelous Wonderettes. I read some negative reviews on this show before we attended it and while it isn't Phantom of the Opera, neither is their ticket price. For the $40 something ticket price, we were certainly entertained for two hours filled...More

This show is Off-Broadway!!! The stage is so tiny it’s smaller than a high school auditorium. I’m also very mad at the helpers in the TKTS line for misleading us to this play! They told us it was similar to Hairspray, don’t listen. The only...More

As a 1958 graduate, hearing all the old familiar songs invoked so many memories, and erased many miles and years ago. Definitely worth watching!!

We arrived to times square late and there are not many discount tickets left, so we decided to try this show. It was entertaining and had a few laughs. Definitely not one of the best but it was cute. The Suzy character was well done.

We did not have high expectations of this show when we saw the tiny run down theater,but it was great! Super funny and very talented ladies. Great inexpensive show.

Great songs from the past, but ruined by an untalented cast of "pick up quality" actors. We were really looking forward to the music, but left very disappointed. This is nothing more than four women singing old songs via a karaoke recording. Save your money...More

First shot at Off-Broadway only to find it a waste of time and money. Good talent with "high school" quality production of a high school setting. Hope the girls make it to Broadway, seriously. We're off Off Broadway.

Took my grandaughter to see the Marvelous Wonderettes while we were in NYC. The songs were fun and brought back memories. All 4 of the actresses had beautiful voices and performed the songs perfectly. Plot was funny with some sad, real life moments in places....More
