TEMECULA – In honor of the 60s theme, the Temecula Old Town Community Theater, located at 42051 Main Street in Temecula, will present the “Summer of Love The Musical” at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 6.
The show whisks its audience into an emotional journey through the 60s counterculture of the Summer of Love era – from its beginnings in the burgeoning San Francisco music scene, through the famous Monterey Pop and Woodstock festivals, to its fateful demise at the Altamont Speedway, just a few short years
With historical audio and video clips, the story is told through the characterization and music and of some of the most immortalized rock stars of the Summer of Love era: Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Sly Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, John Fogerty, Country Joe (and the Fish), while characters Stoney Coughalot and Hippie Dude add humor and a bit of history to the mix.
The show, directed by Warren Davis, features members of the Los Angeles-based group Aquarius, including Gerald Davis as Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone; Connie Early as Grace Slick and Janis Joplin; Ron Olsson as John Fogerty and Joe Cocker; Brian “the Hammer” Wood as Stoney Coughalot; and Dennis Napolitano as Hippie Dude.
