"When stewardesses were sexy and the world was sexist"
is the tagline of this years-in-making musical by Suzy Conn, who also runs the blogway baby
musicals log (which talks about this musical quite a bit). It's meant to be based around the early 1960's, when airlines were truly a luxury, not unlike a sea cruise or a first-class train ride pre-Amtrak. (The website spends some time going on about Braniff International
, and it's worth it to check out the history of that airline. This is also laid out on top of the era of Women's Liberation,
although it does so using the aesthetic of 1960's music and phraseology, which was, basically, designed by male-dominated hollywood.
For everyone who sits in the cheap seats, if you let the flash animation at the beginning of the site load, it plays the entire opening title song for you. Hey, free show!
