"ROUTE 66 is like 'Forever Plaid' on High Octane Fuel! - Milwaukee Metro

You can drive from Chicago to Los Angeles in about thirty-one hours - if you stick to the interstates, that is.  However, for the road warrior who isn’t in a hurry, a cruise along old Route 66 can be an unforgettable journey – one with surprises beyond every curve. This journey has been recreated in the rambunctious new musical comedy, Route 66, which will be screeching to a halt at the Lycian Centre for the Performing Arts on Kings Highway in Sugar Loaf, NY on Sunday, April 11th at 3:00pm.

Take a dollop of GREASE, mix in some PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES and add a generous dose of FOREVER PLAID and you've got the pedal-to-the-metal, high-octane fun of ROUTE 66Route 66 is a musical revue written by Roger Bean, creator of the Off-Broadway hit, The Marvelous Wonderettes. The show features 34 huge pop and country hits and begins in Chicago as it travels along the famed ‘Main Street of America’ to the coast of California. A large car radio delivers us to each new destination along our journey, with DJs and actual vintage radio ads building excitement along the way.  Chock full of hilarious characters, wild antics and good old fashioned schtick, this sure-fire crowd-pleaser features hit songs from the late-50's and early-60's like Dead Man's Curve, King of the Road, Little Old Lady from Pasadena, Six Days on the Road, GTO, Fun, Fun, Fun, I Get Around and of course, Route 66.


Tickets are $28 or $25 for adults and $18 for youth 18 years and younger and can be purchased by calling the Lycian Centre Box Office at 845-469-2287, Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 4pm OR on-line at


Come on over and get your kicks on Route 66!  See you at the show!
