BWW Review: RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET at Rubicon Theatre CompanyBWW Review: RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET at Rubicon Theatre Company
by Cary Ginell - Nov 4, 2016

Before Mamma Mia!, before The Marvelous Wonderettes, and before Jersey Boys, there was Return to the Forbidden Planet, an Off-Broadway space farce that was one of the first musicals to incorporate pop hits into its score.

The show is being staged at the Rubicon Theatre Company in Ventura in a colorful, lively production directed and choreographed by Kirby Ward. (more...)
