Share the silliness of comedy, improvisation, song, and video with the return of Girls Only—The Secret Comedy of Women. “Some things in life are uniquely female,” the show describes in regards to who its target audience is. Men are invited too, of course, but statistics show that women feel particularly drawn to the performance.
Authors Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein developed the original comedy after reuniting with their junior high diaries. They read the contents to one another and realised it was the ideal source for a comedy routine. The one-night performance garnished a mind-blowing reception and the production has grown from there. In 2008, the show returned to stage at the Garner Galleria Theatre to over 96,000 women, earning it close to $2.5 million in revenue. Since then, Girls Only has entertained in Charlotte, Minneapoli, Des Moines, and Winnipeg.
The show's mission is to honour and examine the true nature of what it means to be a girl, from a unique and humourous perspective. The only caution announcement entails the show's conversations of teenage diaries, breast feeding, tampons, menstrual cycles, slumber parties, menopause, and other topics of awkward womanly facts.
Hosted by the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Girls Only has a run time of 1hr45mins + one 15min intermission. Times are as follows:
- Wednesdays-Sundays @7:30pm
- Saturday/Sunday matinees @2pm
Tuesday evening performances start February 18th, and there will be no performance on Sunday evening (February 2nd).
The show's total run starts tomorrow, January 16th and continues until March 9th.
