In Scooty & JoJo’s “parod-usical” Mollywood, the ultimate John Hughes muse Molly Ringwald is having a bad day. Her family has forgotten her sixteenth birthday, she has no date for the prom, and she just got a whole day’s detention. What’s a girl to do? Sing!
Chicago Tribune’s “Best of the Fringe – 2008”
“To see this group fully immersed in the lampoon lagoon of Molly Ringwald’s cinematic heyday is to see them at their best. – Nina Metz, Chicago Tribune
Scooty & JoJo set their sights on the first significant cinematic fables of Generation X: the John Hughes teenpics of the mid-80s. MOLLYWOOD fused the characters, storylines, and soundtracks of “Sixteen Candles”, “The Breakfast Club”, and “Pretty in Pink” into a campy lampoon and love letter to the sacred cows of an entire generation.
“Mollywood promises an abundance of 80′s music, John Hughes characters, and in typical Scooty & JoJo fashion, gay overload.” – Jason Heidemann, TimeOut Chicago
“A joyful and campy spectacle…you won’t want to miss this one!”– Marc Felion, Feast of Fools
