In the drama-drenched hallways of elementary school, a 12-year-old girl getting a valentine returned by her crush is devastating. But on the stage of comedy theater the same scene receives hearty laughs. In Girls Only – The Secret Comedy of Women similarly sweet, awkward, and heartwarming tales are recounted on stage through sketches, improv, and musical scenes. While a duo of actors declares the horrors of a perm or the exhilaration of a slumber party, audiences warm up chuckle muscles and fondly remember childhoods spent on Broadway.
Improv actors Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein penned the performance after stumbling upon the diaries they kept as girls. The pair told an interviewer that the show is a “reunion of girlhood,” and it packs in as many brash costumes and quotable lines as a reunion of superheroes.
Inside the Cabaret’s intimate, 230-seat theater, viewers lounge at tables or in comfy theater-style seats. Dedicated to celebrating musical theater past and present, the Pittsburgh CLO proudly remains a nonprofit cultural institution that lauds distinguished musical-theater folk while launching the careers of another generation of skilled performers.
