This show was so funny and really fun! I am not in the industry so it was really interesting to me that the actors wrote it and the one actress produced and acted in it. I was really impressed. The chemistry between the characters was great; it seemed like they knew each other for a long time. I really enjoyed this play! ... full review

This show may well be the launching point for the brilliant comedic team of Drea Garcia, Jenni Halina, Alex Owens-Sarno and Stephanie Sherry. Not only did they write this hilarious romp (with a little help from their amazing director Kelsea Burke), but they also brought it to life, transporting the audience to those wild and crazy things we did when we were much younger.... full review

Absolutely loved it. What a spot-on, fun slice of life, highlighting a situation I've found myself in far too many times. I loved that the show was able to be simultaneously hilarious, with a couple of too-real moments questioning each of the girls' existential crises, and every member of the cast had a moment to shine. The cast were all so talented, and in between cracking up (and breaking a sweat at the thought of a dead phone after midnight on Halloween!!!), I really appreciated the poignant moments and the ultimate shrine to strong friendships.... full review

This show was a wonderful ride with fun, authentic performances from all involved. The characters were relatable in that you either have friends like this, know people like this, or are like these characters yourself. I could have watched these characters for much, much longer than the 30 minute runtime.... full review

MATTHEW ROBINSON certified reviewer June 10, 2019
A wonderfully written show with a real sense of authenticity. You feel like you know these women because they are so well drawn in such a short amount of time. A show that never gets too silly, nor too heavy it finds that perfect blend of realism and theatre antics to make you truly feel as if you are with these women on a wild night of partying. Jenni Halina along with Drea Garcia, Stephanie Sherry, Alex Owens-Sarno and director Kelsea Burke have a strong and talented command of dialogue and characters and their acting is top notch. I'd very much love to see a sequel with these women.... full review

Female-driven sketch-play hybrid that unflinchingly and unapologetically challenges and illuminates the definition of "girl power."... full review
