UPTOWN — The Black Ensemble Theater's musical comedy "One Hit Wonders" offers audiences a nostalgic journey propelled by memorable tunes from decades past.

"Hey There Lonely Girl," "I Will Survive," "Me and Ms. Jones," "What You Won't Do for Love," "Da Butt" and "Ring My Bell" are some of the flash-in-the pan singles featured in the show, a backstage drama about a cast gearing up for a play about one-hit wonders, according to reviews.

The show is running through the end of the month, according to the theater, 4450 N. Clark St.

Audiences can expect to hear "some of the world’s biggest hits of the ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s," the theater said.

The musical was written by Rueben D. Echoles and Dawn Bless, and is directed by Daryl D. Brooks. It opened near the end of May to generally favorable reviews.
