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. A spoof of the 1956 cult sci-fi film, Forbidden Planet, Bob Carlton's musical utilizes the language and general storyline of William Shakespeare's The Tempest in relating the adventures of an interstellar space ship, which is drawn to a mysterious planet by a mad scientist and his beauteous daughter. The show is being staged at the Rubicon Theatre Company in Ventura in a colorful, lively production directed and choreographed by Kirby Ward. (more...)
