Girls Night: The Musical plots five friends center stage as they ponder their past, celebrate the present, and silently think about robot designs for the future during one comedic night of karaoke. After sold-out runs in Las Vegas and Fort Lauderdale and plugs on NBC and the Lifetime network, the acclaimed musical heads to Philadelphia for a limited engagement. As actresses harmonize to suffragette anthems such as “Lady Marmalade,” “It’s Raining Men," and "I Will Survive" amid vibrant set pieces, audiences laugh, cry, and dance as the theater transforms into a besties convention. Innovation Studio's intimate black-box setting adds an extra layer of community, covering open, hardwood floors with an even plane of chairs to quash the alienation one feels when watching shows from the nosebleed section or through Jean-Paul Sartre's glasses.
The cast delivers each punchline about sex, marriage, and the more womanly parts of life with reasonable honesty and solid comic timing.Kathy Laluck, City Newspaper, 7/21/10
We had a wonderful time - I haven't laughed this hard for so long in quite a while. Would go right back again to see it.tazmarie, Ticketmaster, 10/3/11
