Reunion '69 /Reunion '85

REUNION is a entertainment brand of immersive concerts. Audiences are entertained by comedic hosts, using improvisational and interactive comedy, as well as live singers and a live band, playing a well-known and well-loved catalogue music of TOP 40 hits of the era—and it ends in a celebratory dance party! Reunion 1969 & Reunion 1985 will run in repertory during a developmental production this summer.
