Diana Martinez has reviewed For the Record presents Dear John Hughes for Short & Sweet at the Daily Herald.

“The show is styled like a cabaret show linked with popular 80’s music. Each line is taken from a movie, and every line written by John Hughes himself in a mash-up sketch comedy-like fashion. The show is a nostalgic, campy throwback to mid-1980 and reminisces on the Gen-X teen trials with coming-of-age, prom, detention and relationships. The show weaves in classic scenes and lines from “The Breakfast Club, “Weird Science”, “Pretty in Pink”, “Sixteen Candles” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”…The cast had the audience up on their feet singing and dancing at the finale and isn’t what this kind of show is meant to be? Just fun, nostalgic and feel good.” Read more at the Daily Herald
