The Show

A compilation of the best of the two previous "Alice" plays, this is a sophisticated, bawdy, funny and insightful five women musical revue that celebrates the pleasures and frustrations of growing up female. This production features music, poetry and comic sketches that will be sure to remind you of yourself, your mother, or another woman in your life. The music ranges from gospel to country western to rock to some glorious pop ballads. 

Winner of the Outer Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical.

"Delightful. . .the music and lyrics are so sophisticated that they can carry the weight of one-act plays."
- The New York Times
