BWW Interview: THE BIKINIS Creators, James Hindman and Ray Roderick
by Sherry Shameer Cohen - Jul 5, 2016

Girl group revue is back by popular demand. Two years ago, the Long Wharf Theatre offered a blast from the past with The Bikinis, James Hindman and Ray Roderick's breezy jukebox revue of '60s and '70s music.
