Strangest Things! the Musical follows the storyline of the complete first season of the hit Netflix series, but with many twists. The four young boys are played by women. Also, instead of bikes, they ride around on scooters. When Barb goes off to sit alone by the pool at the party, it’s a small kiddie pool. These and many more funny little things make this show an excellent parody.
The actors do a fantastic job of recreating the characters and then accentuating their quirks to make it hilarious. “Juice” Byers freaking out about Will. Copying the way Dustin speaks. Steve being full of himself. Eleven being very odd. It’s all in there.
And last, but not least, is the great music. There are so many 80s hits rewritten to be about the show which are sung fantastically by this talented cast. Here is the full list!
“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper
“Can’t Fight This Feeling” REO Speedwagon
“Sweet Dreams” Eurythmics
“Endless Love” Lionel Ritchie/Diana Ross
“Let’s Hear it for the Boy” Footloose
“Like a Virgin” Madonna
“Hello” Lionel Ritchie
