World Premiere. By Peter Fitzpatrick (featuring the songs of The Mamas and The Papas). Musical arrangements Simon Stone. Magnormos. Theatre Works, St Kilda (Victoria). Director: Aaron Joyner. Musical Director: Sophie Thomas. 29 August -10 September, 2011.
Fans of the late 60s sensation The Mamas and The Papas will relish this historical tour of their turbulent off-stage lives, and the revival of a unique musical brand. Behind the backdrop to hits like California Dreamin’, Monday Monday, Words of Love, Creeque Alley and Dedicated to the One I Love, band members forged a self-destructive path of drugs, sex, deceit, alcoholism, over-eating, and a debilitating love-triangle.
