‘Rock n Roll’ Back the Years in“Rewind- A New 80’s Musical”

It’s ‘Heaven Can Wait’ meets ‘American Idol’ in “Rewind- A New 80’s Musical,” where a talent manager Nigel (Nelson Haynes) gets a second chance to undo his selfish deeds of the past and Gina (Gi-Gi) (Suzanne Slade) gets a second lease on life, love, and career as a pop singer. It’s a do-over/ rewind cleverly filled with flashbacks and current day alternating what was and what could be. Such a premise is the new, original, fresh one & a half hour pop opera musical, written and produced by Geoffrey Rose and Sam Rose, and now showing at the Actor’s Studio at the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Fest. Each member of the ensemble (Slade; Haynes; David Sasik; Megan Beard; Chris Kerrigan; Natalie Miller; and Thomas Adoue Polk) adds his/her own twist (literally) and personal style to each song and dance number, exquisitely choreographed and directed by Nancy Dobbs Owen. One particular standout song was the finale, all about living the fantasy. The audience will cheer on as each character evolves, develops and realizes one’s full potential both personally and professionally, each one hoping for a happy ‘take 2.’
