“One of the best Musicals I have seen at Fringe.” Jack Stroud

“I loved all the music and the actors were strong…enticing and scary at the same time.” Michito Lamb

“Manson’s Girls is a chilling story made all too human through a fantastic production. Each of the women are clearly defined and instantly relatable; the actresses excel in their performances. Charles Manson’s menacing presence, while not always on stage, is apparent in each of their doting eyes. The well-rounded and beautiful score is full of thought-provoking lyrics, even the cheeky song-and-dance number “Help Yourself.” The production is an absolutely fascinating and remarkable exploration into what it means to lose one’s identity in someone else.”
Lacey Pawlowicz

“Brilliant show. Great approach to a somewhat taboo subject… It’s written very well, music and lyrics are incredible. Hardly noticed 90 minutes flew by. .. When everyone on stage was singing together it was electrifying…Cast is top notch. Well done. I hope it goes beyond this festival.” John Owen

The story of the Manson Family murders, told from the perspective of the girls. With a driving, rock score and book/lyrics which explore the psyche of girls, this story is all-too-relevant today, being a parable and warning to any of us who follows the voice of authority without stopping to question. A brand new musical from New Musicals Inc.
