The Taffetas: A Musical Journey though the Fabulous '50s

By Rick Lewis & Arthur Whiteclaw

Directed by Jennifer Stewart

"The Taffetas" is a musical revue set in 1956. It spotlights four singing sisters performing on a nationally televised performance. They are convinced that Ed Sullivan is watching and the big break theyíve been waiting for may be upon them! The sisters sing, dance, and banter through such numbers as "I'm Sorry," "Tammy," "Fly Me to the Moon," and "Where the Boys Are." Jennifer Stewart directs this nostalgic and comic romp with Scott Gendel as music director. Starring Molly Roller, Anne Gore, Rachel Jorstad and Emily Tucker, The Taffetas will sing their way into your hearts.
