Girls Night: The Musical is the hilarious, touching tale that follows five friends—Carol, the party girl; Anita who tells it like it is; Liza stuck in marital and emotional downfall; Kate, the prissy designated driver and Sharon the “not-so-nice” nice girl—all in their 30s and 40s during a wild and outrageous girls night out at a karaoke bar. Friends since their teens, they have all had their fair share of heartache and tragedy, joy and success. Together, they reminisce about their younger days, celebrate their current lives and look to the future, all the while belting out an array of classic anthems such as “I Will Survive,” “Lady Marmalade,” “It’s Raining Men,” “Man I Feel Like a Woman,” and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.”
Girls Night: The Musical has earned rave reviews playing packed houses throughout the United Kingdom since 2003. It premiered in the US in May 2007 and has toured across the country since then. It has been described as “’Desperate Housewives’ meets Mamma Mia!” (Applause Magazine), “Part anthem, part confessional and all party!” (Telegram & Gazette), “An infectious, exhilarating sense of intoxication!” (Hollywood Reporter) and “As funny and outrageous as ‘Sex and the City’!” (The Advocate).
