But if you thought you could never experience them in an entirely new and different way, Lyric Theatre is here to prove you wrong.

BWW Review: The Taffetas Sing the Soundtrack of a Sweeter, Kinder Time
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Aug 14, 2017

One of the many missions of theatre is to entertain, to provide a fantasy escape from the often harsh realities of our contemporary world, and given the horrifying headlines of late, the delightful confection that is The Taffetas offers a welcome retreat into nostalgia for an era that was - at least as we remember it - surely sweeter, simpler, gentler. Rick Lewis' revue imagines a quartet of winsome, homespun singing sisters from Muncie, Indiana, who take the audience on a musical journey through the 'fabulous fifties' at the same time that they offer a glimpse into the lives and dreams of four young women of the era. The result is a polished, stylish, tongue-in-cheek romp that leaves the audience joyful, amused, and more than a little envious of a time gone by. (more...)
