The brand new musical SUMMER OF LOVE recently had its world premiere at Musical Theatre West and continues through April 17 at the Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts in Long Beach, CA. This original production will be directed by the show's creator and writer, Roger Bean (The Marvelous Wonderettes, Life Could Be A Dream) with choreography by Lee Martino and musical direction by Michael Borth and Michael Paternostro. This production is included in the 2011 FESTIVAL OF NEW AMERICAN MUSICALS.

SUMMER OF LOVE is set in 1967, as the countercultural revolution exploded in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco with riotous politics, creative expression, and amazing music. Holly, a young runaway bride arrives on the scene, and learns to make her own kind of music amid the hippies and dropouts populating the Golden Gate Park. This psychedelic new show features music from some of the most impressionable artists of the love generation: The Mamas and the Papas, Sly & the Family Stone, Jefferson Airplane, Blood, Sweat & Tears and many more.

The performance schedule for SUMMER OF LOVE is Thursdays and through Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., with a 7 p.m. performance added on April 10th.
