90210! The Musical!
Will Be Even Better Than the Real McCoy (McKay?)
by Daniel Maurer
New York Magazine's Bedford + Bowery blog gives a first look at Off-Broadway's upcoming new musical, 90210: The Musical
"Now that you’ve relived the cringiest moments of the ’80s via the roast of Rob Lowe, it’s time to have a good laugh at the ’90s. And what better way to do that than by throwing a surf board in the back of your Porsche Speedster, directing it to Theatre 80, and seeing 90210! The Musical!. Oh, yes. The comedic duo that previously created maniacal musical tributes to Saved by the Bell, Full House, and Showgirls (not to mention that Cats/Kardashians mash-up) are now roasting Aaron Spelling’s demon spawn, the kids of Beverly Hills High School."
