BWW Reviews: VANITIES, the Musical at Theatre Lab, Gimmie a T for Tumultuous!BWW Reviews: VANITIES, the Musical at Theatre Lab, Gimmie a T for Tumultuous!
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Apr 13, 2015

Pompoms, popularity, sorority life and a mid-life crisis are just the tip of the iceberg in VANITIES, the musical. VANITIES, a play by Jack Heifner, opened Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in New York in 1976. The cast included Kathy Bates as Joanne, Jane Galloway as Kathy and Susan Merson as Mary. In 1981, the play was taped and televised on HBO starring Annette O'Toole, Meredith Baxter Birney and Shelley Hack. Needless to say, this script is powerful. The musical was adapted by Jack Heifner with music and lyrics by David Kirshenbaum. When a popular play is transformed into a musical, I am doubtful, but this musical had its moments. (more...)
