70, Girls, 70
The well intended 70, Girls, 70 was competing with the senior citizen casts of Follies and No, No, Nanette for audience nostalgia. The slight caper plot was padded out by a series of vaudevillian turns for the cast members and their ever present accompanist Lorraine.
Clive Barnes wrote "This is a musical of gentle pleasurs, which may well please most the old who are young in heart, and everyone else who likes to see old poeple having fun. It is certainly different from "Hair." ~ New York Times. April 16, 1971.
