In this fierce and feverish world premiere comedy from WP Theater and Second Stage, a gang of teenage girls gathers in an abandoned treehouse to summon the ghost of Pablo Escobar. More…
From the show:
Are they messing with the actual spirit of the infamous cartel kingpin? Or are they really just messing with each other? A roller coaster ride through the danger and damage of girlhood-the teenage wasteland has never been so much twisted fun.
See it if A play about 4 girls in high school and pablo Escobar. Story is in itself okay.
Don't see it if Climax of play is in Spanish. Ending is not that good, could have been better.
See it if When they hand you a paper after that says “Didn’t understand Pablo? Visit www...” you know it’s bad. Absurd, poorly written.
Don't see it if Please don’t waste your time.
See it if Astonishing play about adolescent girls seeking more power over their lives. Full of symbolism, magic, rituals, gore, & physical energy.
Don't see it if You prefer a more literal story, rather than one where the meaning is presented through symbolism. Blood sacrifice, sex, drugs, abortion.
See it if u want to spy on a coequally funny & sinister ritualistic society of unfettered, unabashed adolescents coming to terms w/female empowerment.
Don't see it if u expect this to be akin to Fey's Mean Girls (whereas it's more akin to King's Carrie); ur sensitive to onstage violence, gore & drug use.
See it if wild enthusiasm, silly romance & general lunacy of teenaged girls appeals. The treehouse is perfectly magical & the actresses are charming
Don't see it if you fear that sudden unexpected violence or a weak ending will wreck your experience. Most of the play is delightful.
See it if Four girls seeking to who want power and control over life. They are all lost in way thinking dark magic or ? is the answer.
Don't see it if Blood and the abortion on stage and the killing/murder of the cat on stage.
See it if You want to support the Woman's Project and the...good...work they do.
Don't see it if You don't want to see a home abortion on stage. I shouldn't have to go do research after the play to understand a character's entire scene.
See it if An engaging story of 4 high school girls playing what they think is a game, but turns out otherwise. Mostly watchable.
Don't see it if The climax of the play is mostly in Spanish - an incomprehensible choice. I did not know or understand what was going on.
See it if you enjoy a play about teenage girls dealing with their fears and fantasies and coming of age.
Don't see it if adolescent drama is not your thing, It vacillates between brilliant and trite
See it if Adolescent teenage girls are simply fascinating complex creatures & this group of upper-middle-class girls at a prep school in Miami are it!
Don't see it if lots of super taboo topics explored reverently and freely with some violence and a large passage entirely in Spanish may not be for everyone
See it if You want to see something that will in many ways push you past your comfort zone as an audience member. You enjoy supernatural-thrillers.
Don't see it if You don't have the stomach for some pretty strong violent content.
See it if A smart, funny, intelligent play that is well written & directed, with an excellent cast of young actors. Feels fresh, relevant and timely.
Don't see it if If your theatrical tastes are drawn to more traditional works.
See it if You know I had this on my list of plays to see. If you’re a feminist, educated in political/ worldly culture, pro-women, pro-LGBT, non-pious
Don't see it if Not offended by seances, blood, sacrifices, sexual topics, drugs, and know some Spanish- you’ll like this. It was VERY entertaining. All the
See it if You enjoy the emotional rollercoaster that is teen femininitiy when it is cleverly and sympathetically presented,
Don't see it if There is sacrificial blood,voodoo,cocaine, some Spanish (untranslated) and a finale out of "Carrie" and more. Beware the last 10 minutes.
See it if You are interested in stories about teenage girls dealing with all kinds of issues. The dialogue is glorious and feels totally real.
Don't see it if You would be upset by depictions of drug use, or discussions of difficult topics, or depictions of violence.
See it if outstanding premise, excellently executed. the writing and production was so precise, the absurdity of the premise went over some heads.
Don't see it if irony frequently goes over your head. i'm not entirely in love with the ending, but since i respect the playwright and the production, okay.
See it if Complicated story that presents as fluffy simple ones. Layered motivations. Good young performers. Well-staged & realized new dramatic voice
Don't see it if You like crystal clear story-telling or it bothers you that some is performed in Spanish and you don't speak it. On stage violence/blood
See it if Interesting look into minds of teenage girls that goes from amusing to cruelty to surreal. Holds interest. Never saw Wolves.
Don't see it if Have trouble when characters all talk at once. Don't speak Spanish and would rather not have to look up what was said on website.
See it if acting okay, but part was in Spanish and you were left to try to get an understanding from context, dramatic
Don't see it if big minus if you don't speak Spanish
