Onstage: Why Do Fools Fall in Love?

Even as Million Dollar Quartet is still shakin’ things up at the Aronoff, the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts this week kicks off a different kind of quartet with a lot of familiar Pop melodies. This less famous foursome is a bachelorette party that not only sings classic numbers from the ’60s — including “My Boy Lollipop,” “I Will Follow Him,” “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” and “Hey There, Lonely Boy” — but also dishes on each other’s love lives more than they might have imagined. “I know of a fool, you see, for that fool is me,” goes the lyric made famous by Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers — “Tell me why, tell me why?” And the answer, no doubt, is, “Because it’s good entertainment.” Thursday-Saturday. Through March 24. $20-$23. Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, 4990 Glenway Ave. 513-241-6550, cincinnatilandmarkproductions.com.
