  The Andrews Brothers at International City Theatre

The Andrews Brothers

International City Theatre
330 East Seaside Way Long Beach

A madcap musical salute to the swinging ’40s created by Roger Bean (The Marvelous Wondrettes, Life Could Be A Dream). A USO show is threatened with cancellation when a certain famous trio of singing sisters fails to show up, and it’s up to three earnest and determined stagehands to go on with the show. Mistaken identities, zany adventures, a bit of cross-dressing and the music of an entire generation highlight this valentine to the heroes of World War II. Featuring over 25 songs made famous by the Andrews Sisters, including “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Slow Boat to China,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.”

Broadway World - Recommended

"...The sung-through musical is sure to please those who remember the 1940s first-hand, or those of us who appreciate the song stylings of those bygone days. According to Bean, "Here we create the atmosphere of a rag-tag USO team - a very real organization with an important and impressive history - sing songs familiar to many in the audience, and try to live up to the memory of a legendary singing group.""

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...International City Theatre's 35th season gets off to a nostalgically tuneful, breezily comedic start with The Andrews Brothers, Roger Bean's seniors-targeted journey back to the 1940s, engagingly directed and choreographed for ICT by Jamie Torcellini.."

Showmag - Highly Recommended

"...Joyfully directed and cleverly choreographed by Jamie Torcellni, with period perfect musical direction of a four piece band by Brent Crayon, The Andrew Brothers ultimately depends on the prowess and charm of the four-member cast. No performer disappoints here. Michael D'Elia, Grant Hodges, and Max DeLoach, as Lawrence, Max, and Patrick, respectively, combine energy and vulnerability in creating their winning characterizations. When they team up on tunes such as "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and the hilarious "Hula Ba Luau" number, the entertainment becomes effervescent."

Theatre Notes - Highly Recommended

"...International City Theatre had a hit last year with Roger Bean jukebox musical, Life Could Be a Dream, so why not have another go, this time with The Andrews Brothers, that showcases the tight harmonies of The Andrews Sisters-Patty, Laverne and Maxine-their snappy, close harmonies still bringing joy to the listener. This music is iconic, and the trio kept at it for decades, despite the internal rancor that eventually developed. But let that pass, the music speaks for itself."
