Don't see it if lack of plot logic audience that contains weepy babies & rude parents who do not remove them rude young people with cell phones

A theater full of kids and only 1 under 2 had to leave., Great staging, Ambitious, Bloodthirsty

See it if you like constant movement. an interesting smash up of themes. I loved the set and use of props creatively changing with the story.

Don't see it if If you don't like to see energetic actors working really hard. you object to war themes and virtual blood letting in a children's play. Read more

"The cast of young actors are, simply put, divine. Acting, singing, dancing, building and breaking down the set and making the magic of it appear effortless. This ensemble is flawless. The co-direction of Beatty and Costello is a rocket ship to the stars. Propelling us into other worlds with their staging and ingenious crafting of set and props. They have fashioned, with the writing of Kruckemeyer, a joyous time at the theatre...Kruckemeyer has created a new kind of magical mythical fairy tale."

"Like all worthwhile adventures, 'This Girl'...starts down a familiar path, hits a fork in the road, and then goes off in unanticipated and delightful directions...This is no-tech storytelling theater at its most inventive, with eight multitasking cast members portraying numerous characters, sharing narration duties, and even playing music...It's certainly refreshing to see a show with...three female leads who are all so different, and a narrative that easily passes the Bechdel test."
