Bittergirl: The Musical
- By Annabel Fitzsimmons, Alison Lawrence, and Mary Francis Moore
- With Music Supervision, Arrangements, and Orchestrations by Bob Foster
THE HOWLINGLY FUNNY SHOW ABOUT GETTING OVER GETTING DUMPED
This cathartic and catchy musical charts the romantic breakups of three women and the lively antics that ensue. ’60s girl group music like “Be My Baby,” “And Then He Kissed Me,” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and “Where Did Our Love Go?” provide the perfect backdrop for the bittergirls’ journey back to happiness. Who knew getting dumped could be so much fun?
Running time: Approx. 1 hour 45 minutes, including one intermission

"I often don't care for musicals/comedies, finding the music bland and the dialogue unfunny, but this show was incredible. Absolutely toe tapping songs, with a very witty, well delivered script. Would see it again for sure."
