Directed by Leda Hoffmann
March 17–April 3, 2022 | Studio One, Riffe Center
The music of The Go-Go’s (“We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation”) fuses with the 16th century pastoral romance, The Arcadia. The result is a musical comedy that challenges the boundaries of gender, class, and social institutions. Follow the escapades of a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their kingdom, only to discover “the beat” lies within each of them. An exuberant celebration of love and gender in all its forms.
Recommended for ages 13 and up
