BWW Review: RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET Gloriously Re-Visits the Rubicon Theatre Galaxy to Celebrate its 20th Anniversary SeasonBWW Review: RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET Gloriously Re-Visits the Rubicon Theatre Galaxy to Celebrate its 20th Anniversary Season
by Shari Barrett - Oct 30, 2018

The musical is a send-up of the cult classic movie and other sci-fi films and TV shows of the 1950s, melded with plot elements from "The Tempest" along with dialogue bits from multiple Shakespeare plays. That was part of the fun for me, catching so many Shakespearean quotes perfectly placed in the dialogue of Bob Carlton's musical set on a spaceship sometime in the future, featuring a galaxy of 1950's and 1960's rock and roll classics including "Wipeout," "Good Vibrations," "Great Balls of Fire," "All Shook Up," "Monster Mash" and "We Gotta Get Out of this Place." And what an outrageously fabulous band under the musical direction of Trevor Wheetman and Omar D. Brancato, both of whom rocked the house on guitars while believably playing Ensign crew members onstage. (more...)
