SURFS UP!! Now at Planet Hollywood a new exciting foot tapping sing along show! Sparkling and bubbling over with fun SURF the Musical celebrates the music of the ever young Beach Boys! Expect your favorite songs but sometimes re-arranged in new and different ways. This does not detract from the songs but enhances them and continues to re-enforce that these songs are iconic.
What is SURF The Musical about? It is a love story with song and dance. Tanner loves Brooke but leaves their idyllic beach town to pursue his dreams of “making it in the big city” with his musical abilities. Soon he realizes that sometimes you go away to only be drawn back in. When Tanner returns he finds the love of his life Brooke changed and affected deeply by the death of her mother. She is now in the arms of the town’s bad boy Rip. After much soul searching and angst these two are reunited in their love.
However on the way to re-discovering their love…fun sets and exciting musical numbers! The audience went wild with “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” and “Good Vibrations!” An LED screen provides one of the highlights, a Ferris wheel ride. Yes a Ferris Wheel ride on stage!
Leads Tanner (Marshal Kennedy Carolan) and Brooke (Lauren Zakrin) chemistry is real and plays well onstage. Bad boy Rip (Alex Ringler) plays his part to perfection with the swagger and rock hard abs that had the ladies in the audience cheering! For me the best singing voice in the entire cast is Broadway veteran Robert Torti who plays Brooke’s father. Audience favorite Adrian Zmed (remember TJ Hooker) plays Nick who owns Nick’s Surf Shack and he sings along with gusto and flair.
A wild musical ride that will have you leaving the theater with “Good Vibrations!”
