Onstage: The Marvelous Wonderettes

When I attended the Covedale Center’s production of The Marvelous Wonderettes at a Sunday matinee, there were no young people in attendance. The show’s nostalgic score — girl-themed Pop tunes from the late 1950s and early ’60s (pre-Beatles) — has a nostalgic draw for people who grew up with them.
