Girls Night: The Musical plots five friends center stage as they ponder their past, celebrate their present, and silently think about robot designs for the future during one comedic night of karaoke. Actresses belt out renditions of such female classics as “Lady Marmalade,” “Man I Feel Like A Woman,” and “I Will Survive” amid vibrant set pieces, and 14th Street Theatre's intimate table seating ensures all 288 guests can see every smirk, eye roll, and subtle back flip with ease. Groupon holders receive the best non-VIP seats possible (any table other than tables A–G) upon the redemption of their vouchers at the theater's will-call station.
Nestled within the acoustic splendor of the Blossom Music Center's pyramid-shaped pavilion, you’ll be close enough to taste the high notes of the piccolos, the vibrato of crashing cymbals, and the sass of brassy fanfares as the Blossom Festival Band fills the air with patriotic music. Led by conductor Loras John Schissel, the program will include the toe-tapping marches of John Philip Sousa, a salute to the U.S. Armed Forces, and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. As long as the weather allows, fireworks will follow the concert—an exploding cherry bomb on top of the sweet sundae evening.

Crooner Cee Lo Green augments the songful offerings with his own vocal talents, and Roc Nation rapper and rhythm scientist J. Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.
