Move over 'Spinal Tap.' Three young moms get their humble start at the PTA talent show, then go on to "clean up" as the most celebrated, yet unlikely girl group in history with their 'domestic' brand of rock 'n roll. It's the world premiere of "It's the Housewives!" a comic rock musical with side splitting songs at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks.
The 19 hilarious songs at the heart of the show - with titles like "In Sink And At Your Disposal," "Ironing Bored," "I've Been Defrosting All Day" and the "Reynolds Rap" - are the brainchild of two-time Grammy award-winning guitarist Laurence Juber (former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's Wings) and his Emmy-nominated wife, television writer Hope Juber. Soon after they were married, Hope wanted to combine her comedy writing with Laurence's rock and roll music. She became inspired while caring for the first of their two babies, and the songs they created about vacuum cleaners ("It Sucks"), dirty diapers ("Be My Babysitter") and daily household duties ("Pledge or Behold") went on to cook up a storm on Entertainment Tonight, Hard Copy, John and Leeza, The Home Show and Oprah.
"If you can keep from laughing too hard at the lyrics and actually take a listen to the songs themselves, these are some well constructed tunes," wrote Music Connection Magazine. All Music Guide crowed: "Comical lyrics sure to tickle the funny bones of both male and female fans alike… hilarious!"
Performances of "It's the Housewives!" are scheduled Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm, September 6 through October 12.
The Whitefire Theatre is located at 13500 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks (three blocks east of Woodman, at Sunnyslope). For reservations and information, call (323) 960-5563 or go to http://itsthehousewives.com
