SOMEWHAT RECOMMENDED

Cobbled together by Bob and Tobly McSmith with music by Assaf Gleizner, the show is a parody and it is funny.

Songs proclaim the life-style of spoiled rich kids (and their parents) in LA’s iconic 90210 zip code.

The show deals with some of the drama, however without empathy for teenage problems.

And if looking for clever dialogue, forget it. The script relies on juvenile humor.

But if merely interested in what a popular teen series in the 90s looks like as a campy show, you’ll probably like it and for sure will laugh.

The best part of the show is the singing voice of Ana Maru as Brenda Walsh, a new girl in town from the Midwest.

DETAILS: ‘Bob and Tobly’s Beverly Hills 90210 The Musical (The unauthorized parody)’ is at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 E. Chestnut St. Chicago, Sept. 13 – 17, 2017. For tickets and other information call (800) 775 -2000 and visit BroadwayinChicago.
