Ronnie Spector: Beyond the Beehive
Former Ronettes lead singer Ronnie Spector has a lot of fascinating stories to tell, from her days touring with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to being virtually imprisoned in her own home by domineering former husband Phil Spector, to eventually reviving her career in a most triumphant fashion after escaping Phil's clutches. Tonight, Ronnie brings back to town her entertaining "Beyond the Beehive" revue, where she marvelously intersperses renditions of some of her beloved old hits with quick-moving, fascinating tales about the creative people she's worked with. Instead of being mired in the distant past, Spector surprises with lively, modern remakes of tunes by her pals The Ramones ("She Talks to Rainbows") and the best version of "You Can't Put Your Arms 'Round a Memory" this side of Johnny Thunders. Also at the Observatory, Tuesday, July 1; and Pappy & Harriet's, Wednesday, July 2.
