If a particularly Manic Monday ever inspired you to Walk Like an Egyptian, if you just want them to know they didn't break you, if you know that Melvilles was the Restaurant upstairs from Cheers, or if you were only able to solve your Rubik’s cube because you peeled off all the stickers, you’re in the right place; this is the 80s at 8 powered by Rock of Ages coming to the Shubert Theater on March 21st and 22nd.
