About this Article
Like many of the bubblegum-pop tunes it features, "Route 66" at the Metropolis Performing Arts Centre is quick, breezy and entertaining. It's also likely to be forgotten soon after the final note plays. The musical revue pays adoring tribute to the rock 'n' roll songs of the 1950s and early '60s. The show takes us on a journey that begins at a Chicago Texaco station and ends in sunny California, the two points connected, of course, by that iconic Main Street of America, Route 66.
