One of the best Musicals I have seen at Fringe.There was an obvious quality in the performances,songs,staging and direction.The band was tight and not too loud....IMO this should be amongst the Nominees for Best Ensemble at least A+... full review
JOHN OWEN certified reviewer June 04, 2018
Brilliant show. Great approach to a somewhat taboo subject. There are some phenomenal songs that I suspect will find life outside the musical. Hummable, toe tapping, memorable songs in a Manson musical, hilarious. Music is spot on for the period, singing is stellar. Band is fantastic. Strongest moments for me were the building harmonies. When everyone on stage was singing together it was electrifying. The humor was thoughtfully placed and appreciated. Cast is top notch. Well done. I hope it goes beyond this festival.... full review

Everything you want in a musical, and so much more: Conflict, action, humor, irony, toe-tapping melodies, tight arrangements, superb solos, clever lyrics, compelling characters, yummy choreography, a satisfying ending that somehow leaves us wanting more. Thought provoking. Polished performances. GO. GO NOW. ... full review

An astonishing accomplishment, better than I could ever have imagined. I could have watched another hour of it. Thoughtful, tuneful and by turns horrifying and hilarious. The cast was superb and the band top notch. Deserves a life beyond Fringe!... full review

Considering the origin story being so dark and eerie, I was pleasantly surprised on how the team, actors+writers+producers+etc, brought humor into it. I thought the play was overall concise and very well planned out.... full review
SEANA GRAHAM certified reviewer June 08, 2018
I was a little nervous about seeing a musical based on the Manson Family, but I needn't have been. The show recalls a time of change and ferment which feels connected to our own in the various movements it was spawning. I loved the way the music, which was varied and rich (and well sung) matched seamlessly with the libretto. There was a lot of food for thought as well as sheer entertainment. It was an incredibly innovative show that many wouldn't have attempted in a musical form.... full review

This was the best show I have ever seen at the fringe. Make sure you get to the Broadwater to see it before it ends. The acting was phenomenal, the band sounded amazing and the story was both entertaining and surprisingly funny. ... full review
MICHAEL FONTAINE certified reviewer June 09, 2018
There’s been so many things written about Charles Manson, but not a lot has been done from the perspective of The Family. “Manson’s Girls” is a musical about the Manson murders, told from the perspective of the women in The Family.... full review
