The Marvelous Wonderettes

The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis

Melissa Rain Anderson has directed with a tongue-in-cheek whimsy and her choreography captures the magic and mystery of both decades and their differing styles.

A goodly amount of physical comedy from all four of them...this isn’t a show with four singers just standing there snapping their fingers in unison. Melissa Rain Anderson directs and choreographs with plenty of action.

The show is directed and choreographed by Melissa Rain Anderson, who perfectly captures what I imagine a ’50s prom would be like. She ensures that the audience really feels like they are there, and makes it easy to get lost in the moment for a couple of hours. I wouldn’t have thought that the choreography would be so impressive for such a simple premise, but I was mistaken. The dancing and movements are all wonderful as the women are constantly switching places and rearranging on-stage. The seamless execution was more of a ballet than I would have ever expected.
