Photo Coverage: Beehive Opens in LA


"American Idol" star LaToya London is featured in the retro musical Beehive, which began at the El Portal Theatre in Los Angeles from on September 24th and plays through October 8th.

Among the stars who turned out for the opening were Sara Ramirez, Lea Thompson, Joanne Worley, Karen Morrow and Doug Sills.

Also starring Stacy Francis, Kathleen Hennessey, Tricia Kelly, Sylvia MacCalla and Lesli Margherita, the show is helmed by Nick DeGruccio with choreography by Lee Martino.  "Silly and serious, funny and phenomenal, this feelgood, fast-paced '60s songfest is all about having a good time. So, grab your Aquanet and go-go boots and get ready to party!," state El Portal notes.

Beehive is the inaugural production by the new company Valley Musical Theatre, which will also present Sally Struthers and Adrian Zmed in Nuncrackers this holiday season.

The El Portal Theatre is located at 5269 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood, CA. Tickets range from $30-$45; call (866) 811-4111, or visit or
