What do you know about Amelia Earhart? Most likely, it starts and ends with the fact that she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in 1937. But there's so much more to know about the life of this outspoken feminist and aviation pioneer than the mystery surrounding her death. The new musical Earhart: More Than A F*cking Mystery at the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June brings the story of this smart, scrappy and relentlessly ambitious woman to life with an all-female cast and a selection of catchy original songs.

This hilarious, heartfelt show features actors and performers found throughout Los Angeles at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, Second City, The Groundlings, Nerdist and the Ruby as well as TV, film, and commercials. Earhart is the latest musical written by Manny Hagopian, known for Assistants (Award-winning Fringe show 2015), Tonya Harding The Musical (UCB, Featured in the New York Times, LA Weekly, and on E! Entertainment), and writing of the blockbuster award-winning video game franchise Titanfall.

The standout in the production was Muriel Montgomery as Putnam himself. For a good time a Gold Medal and a scolding....

Earhart – More than a F-ing Mystery (A Musical Flight) is an interesting show that has quite a bit of promise. In many ways, it reminds me of Gutenberg: The Musical (which we saw in San Diego a few years ago), due to its tongue in cheek attitude and the way that it recognizes that is it a stage show. Right now, the show itself is extremely Fringe-y and at times a bit cheesy, but I think there are some really strong bones that could support taking this forward and making it into something much much more. The basic story combines with a strong set of performances to make this all so wonderful.

Great songs, great performances, clever concept! Very enjoyable and a great Fringe length! The talent in this cast was awesome! The women who played Amelia and Ms. Earhart were charming and wonderful! With an added 30 minutes, this all female musical should be off Broadway! Manny Hagopian's songs were catchy and wonderfully crafted musical theatre numbers. I wanted to buy a CD! (Which you can, I just didn't have cash!) Great venue for this show as well! I would have liked a program! Or at least the online Fringe page to have the full cast listed with photos and roles.
