Coronado Playhouse premieres “The It Girl”
Coronado Playhouse presents the West Coast premiere of the enchanting musical The It Girl, a lighthearted tribute to the roaring ’20s, silent movies and Clara Bow. The show plays July 10 through Aug. 9.
The It Girl is a jazz age flapper musical salute to an era when the music was colorful, right and wrong were black and white, and the girl who had “it” had it all.
Based on the 1927 silent movie, IT, by Paramount Motion Pictures, starring Clara Bow, the musical retells the story about a sassy department store salesclerk who wins an advertising contest held to find the girl with the elusive, thrilling quality known as “it”. In this homage to the period’s innocence, a poor but adorable shopgirl falls for the dashing head of a department store. Madcap merriment ensues as she captures his heart.
