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). Hilarious and touching, GIRLS NIGHT: THE MUSICAL follows five friends 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. Among the characters are Carol the party girl, blunt Anita who tells it like it is, Liza with her marital issues, boring Kate the designated driver, and Sharon, the not-so-angelic angel who just couldn’t resist tagging along. 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.”
British Playwright, Author and Television Producer, Louise Roche has written and produced six other plays including “Girls Night” (UK Tours 2003, ‘04,’06), “Bobby and Johnny” (UK Tour 2005), “Girls Behind” (UK Tour 2005), “Checkout Girls” (Milton Keynes 2005), “Lucky Balls” (Milton Keynes 2002), and “Milton Keynes The Musical” (2002).
