BEST OF THE BABES . . . 25th Anniversary revue!
In 2014, with the advent of SOCIAL MEDIA and a desire to honor their wildly successful touring escapades over the past two and a-half decades, THE BABES, have decided to become their own tribute band by shining the spotlight back over 25 years of their most requested HIT songs. It’s this enormous repertoire that made THE BABES the venerable “original girls night out” tour-de-force musical comedy theatre hit they are today!
Nancy Moran steps back in to join Sally Fingerett, Debi Smith and Deirdre Flint for a love-fest-look-back over the astounding catalogue of songs that celebrate all the roles that women play in this new world. From the men loving hysterical “Bald Headed Men” “My Kinda Man” and “Take Me Out To Eat” to the side splitting “I Remember Butter” “L.A.F.F (Ladies Against Fanny Floss)” & “These Boots Are Made for Walking.” THE BABES highlight their charm and heart with moving pieces such as the multi-generational “Pass It On” “Home Is Where The Heart Is” and “Unconditional Love.”
With this soulful and commemorative look back, these gals just keep moving! Join them for the retrospective show highlighting their wonderful history as THE FOUR BITCHIN’ BABES!
