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

The Theater holds about 100 people. Only 4 people in the production. It was funny and we enjoyed the music from the 50s. The kids really enjoyed it. Maybe not worth the $55 per seat that I paid, but a decent show.

The small venue, off Broadway production, Marvelous Wonderettes, was not on our radar. With a TKTS recommendation and last minute pricing we gave it a try. Great fun, family appropriate, exacting harmony, subtle humor combined for a delightful evening.

Our first time at an off Broadway play. We were surprised at how small the venue was. Felt like a small school auditorium. But the comedy and talent of the 4 actresses was all worth it!. The small theater made it feel like they were...More

Don't go honestly walked out during intermission. Biggest load of crap. We got reduce tickets for dollars I wouldn't go again even it was free. Childish humour not for adults. If you want to go to an amazing show go to kinky boots.
