The Revelettes 60s Go Go Spectacular Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Saturdays. Continues through May 25 2013

This 60s pop-rock revue began with a casual ten-minute game of bingo that nobody managed to win, not that anyone seemed to care—prizes were given out to any go-go-getter who would claim them. Then emcee Andy Somma announced what appeared to be the premise of the evening's performance: "If you think about it, the next few years are just going to be the 50th anniversary of what happened in the 60s." The Revelettes took the stage in white pleather boots, first for a dance tribute to the late Annette Funicello, then to perform kitschy cult classics like "Do the Trog" and "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes." The Reveltones covered some retro chart toppers as well, proving their groovy panache with renditions of "Goldfinger" and "Song of a Preacher Man." Nothing special, all in all, but at least I went home with a consolation prize. —Hannah Gold

Price: $15
