MACON – Share the fun and laughter of the hilarious, feel-good comedy, Girls Night the Musical, at The Grand Opera House, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. and March 24 at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. Girls Night follows five friends in their 30s and 40s during a wild and outrageous girls night out at a karaoke bar. The show has earned rave reviews playing packed houses throughout the United Kingdom since 2003. It premiered in the U.S. in May 2007 and has toured across the country since then. It has been described as “Desperate Housewives meets Mamma Mia” (Applause Magazine), “Part anthem, part confessional and all party” (Telegram & Gazette), “An infectious, exhilarating sense of intoxication” (Hollywood Reporter) and “As funny and outrageous as Sex and the City” (The Advocate).
Friends since their teens, the five main characters have all had their fair share of heartache and tragedy, joy and success. Among them are Carol the party girl, blunt Anita who tells it like it is, Liza with her marital issues, boring Kate the designated driver, and Sharon, the not-so-angelic angel who just couldn’t resist tagging along. Together, they reminisce about their younger days, celebrate their current lives and look to the future, all the while belting out an array of classic anthems such as ‘I Will Survive,” “Lady Marmalade,” “It’s Raining Men,” “Man I Feel Like a Woman” and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.”
