10 Photos That Prove Beaches: The Musical is Delivering All the Sass and Schmaltz We Love
'Beaches' on stage (top) and screen
'Beaches' is a musical! And it looks exactly like the movie!

The musical Beaches is here (well, if "here" is Arlington, Virginia, where it's at the Signature Theatre through March 30), and based on these photos, it's delivering everything we know and love about the story of two friends through thick and thin. Let's relive that teary tale through the production photos, shall we?


Young, uptight Bertie Hillary (sorry—her name in the movie was Hillary so she's HIllary to us!) is hanging out on the beach...


...when sassy Cee Cee Bloom struts by (with a straw hat and cane, apparently).


They meet and become unlikely BFFs for life.


They keep in touch during their teen years...


...and reunite as adults.


Bertie Hillary gets married...


CeCe becomes a bawdy Bette Midler-style performer (naturally)...


Really, they're inseparable. Until...


Tragedy strikes!


And, in the end, a power ballad for Cee Cee (but not THAT one).
