My family and I just returned from watching a wonderful musical with our homeschool co-op, The Marvelous Wonderettes. It takes place in the 50s and 60s and got me thinking: have I ever seen an 80s musical? Rent makes me think of the 80s a bit with its colorful, early 90s setting, but I can't think of anything that is very specific to the 80s, so I looked it up.
There's a musical that takes place in the 80s called Back to the 80s. It was originally aired in Australia in 2004 and features a bunch of 80s pop songs, so I think we'd enjoy it. I've never heard of it before today, though, so who knows if the opportunity will ever arise?
Do you know of any other musicals about the 80s?
