About the show

The Players Theatre presents the New York debut of this song cycle conceived by Jaime Lozano as a tribute to the women in his life. More…

Inspired by his upbringing in a strong matriarchy, Lozano and nine female lyricists wrote songs that explore the unique challenges women face in society today on the journey to find happiness, love, and meaning in their lives. The themes of acceptance, hope, and friendship are universal reminders that no matter who we are or where we come from, our lives are all connected through the shared experience of womanhood.

Disappointing, Thought-provoking, Cliched

See it if you prefer a Cabaret Act but not a play. and you like historical theaters. Many different styles of song. Some rising talent.

Don't see it if you were expecting a play. Seats are not staggered (from days of yore) Lead singer was replaced. Choreography needs help.

Also A microphone malfunctioned for some time. With the theater at 2/3 capa... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Great staging, Excruciating, Fell short on multiple fronts

See it if you want to hear some new song writing with four talented singers.

Don't see it if bothered by loud piano over female voices that don't always harmonize on songs that lack something, added to mic troubles in stuffy theater.

Disappointing

See it if you enjoy off key singing. This show had potential. The songs had good lyrics, and the simple staging with chairs worked.

Don't see it if you enjoy good singing. The cast was so off key that it was painful to hear. With a good cast, this show about women's lives could be great.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if You're a feminist or you just like an all woman song fest.

Don't see it if You have sensitive ears.

Disappointing, Great singing, Great staging, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if Like feminist issues.

Don't see it if Dont like hearing about some other people troubles.

Also The piano completely drown out some of the singer's songs.

Cliche, Slow, Disappointing, Confusing, Long

See it if you enjoy song cycles and you want to experience four relative new comers to the New York theater scene

Don't see it if You expect creative lyrics or songs you'll remember once you walk out the door. No real storyline throughout the song cycle

Ambitious, Fluffy, Quirky, Relevant, Funny

See it if you are a fan of shows that are reminiscent of Songs for a New World, or you like all-female casts

Don't see it if You don't enjoy a song cycle about the female experience

Disappointing, Amateurish, Light

See it if you need something to do for a girls nights out. Like shows about women's lives that don't get too deep.

Don't see it if you can't tolerate off key singing and sound system issues

Also The loud music sometimes made it difficult to hear the singers. Also, ... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Overpowering music

See it if you are curious to see a production that needs A LOT of work. Songs were a mishmash with miscast singers.

Don't see it if you expect to hear the singing or want meaningful lyrics.

Also So much work is needed on this one. The music trio (keyboard, cello, h... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Pedestrian, Earnest, Instantly forgettable, Cabaret

See it if you are willing to give this all-female cabaret show a chance; enjoy typical musical comedy songs about sisters, dating and diets

Don't see it if you expect something different; except for a few clever moments and nice staging with minimal props, this show is pretty banal

Also Live music trio drowned out the not-so-hot singers, who all had rather... Read more Read less

"It may or may not be a case of too many cooks, but the brew is spoiled in any event...Arrangements for most songs have vocals and accompaniment at odds with each other, on separate melodic tracks that are not complementary...Staging is simple, which works well for this type of entertainment...Ly...

"Seems to have a limited view of women...The songs mostly fit into three categories...The few songs that seemingly step away from these narrow views of love and beauty and make a vague attempt to discuss something else fall flat...Beyond the underwhelming vocal performances, unnecessary and strai...

"A thrilling song cycle...Four gifted women sing the songs...The loose thread that ties together the songs in this cycle are women and their struggles - with men, with body image, with weight, with looks, with relationships, with hope for the future...My only complaint was that the amplification ...
