Broadway Review: The Bikinis at Westchester Theatre 2017

Published: Friday, February 17, 2017 By: Westchester Connect Source: Westchester Connect

A brand new beach party musical, ‘The Bikinis’ is on stage now at the Westchester Broadway Theatre in Elmsford, NY.  We were invited to watch and review this brand new show.

If you are unfamiliar with how the Broadway Theatre works, it is one of a kind in Westchester.  It does not just have regular seats like a movie theater.  They have tables for 2, 3, and 4.  You will receive dinner and a show.  It is a great place to come for a date night, or to celebrate a special occasion.  They had a lot of milestones and birthdays to announce the night we saw the show including a 50th anniversary and a retirement party.

Tip: If you go for a birthday or a celebration, make sure to let someone at the ticket desk know what you are celebrating and they will mention you in their opening announcements.  

The menu offered some delicious selections including fish, chicken, and eggplant.  The chicken francese and eggplant parmigana were great!  For dessert, they brought out an ice cream sundae with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, cherry on top and a light drizzling of chocolate syrup.  Delectable!

To sum up the show, we would say it is definitely a lighthearted concert.  It does have a story throughout the show, but it is largely more of a concert in our opinion.  The cast of 4 women sing in front of the live band throughout the show.  If you are a fan of the 60’s and 70’s music, you will love this.  You will hear hits such as ‘It’s In His Kiss,” “The Twist,” “Heat Wave,” all the way to Donna Summer’s hit, “Last Dance.”

The cast definitely wowed us with their powerful vocals and we were hoping for a longer rendition of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” that they sang at the end while throwing beach balls into the crowd.

We also loved the way “The Bikinis” interacted with the audience, pointing out many of them during the songs and even dancing in the aisles.  It’s an upbeat and energetic show.

For the month of February, the Broadway Theatre is offering a special.  Buy one full priced ticket for dinner and the show, and receive the second one free.  This is valid when purchasing over the phone or in person at the box office.

“The Bikinis” are on stage now through – March 19, 2017
