About the show

This new musical is a high-energy celebration of American women, and an exploration of their changing role from 1900 to today as illustrated through pop music. More…

‘This One’s For the Girls’ carries the audience from the codependence of ‘I Will Follow Him’ to the anger of ‘These Boots are Made for Walking,’ to the cynicism of “What’s Love Got to Do with it,” and finally to the strength of ‘Hero.’ Combining excerpts of 60 songs with women’s own stories about finding dreams, lost love, relationship issues, entering the workforce, gaining independence, and more, this show is a lively look at music’s depiction of women, as they go from codependence to independence.

1h 30m | Ends Jan 05 | St Luke's Theatre (Midtown W)

“Dorothy Marcic pulls off a feat of theatrical legerdemain, writing an entertaining jukebox musical that also has an important message. Using 40 Top 40 hit songs of the past 100 years, Ms. Marcic's ‘This One's For the Girls’ cleverly exposes how women were and are perceived-by themselves, men and society-during different periods, beginning with ‘My Man,’ Fanny Brice's 1921 masochistic lament, and its 1967 sister song, ‘It Must Be Him,’ through the drippy, square 1950's ‘Que Sera.’” Full Review

Diandra Reviews it All

"One of the brightest Off-Broadway shows I have seen. It is filled with an innocent vibrance that brims with hope and a childlike glee. This musical is so joyful it might take you aback, but the audience, scoped in ages, was eager to hear the music that defined their era and share a few sweet laughs...'This One’s For The Girls' truly lives up to its name and aim to show loving your womanhood defines female confidence."

The Komisar Scoop

"This smart musical revue tells the changing attitudes of and toward women over a century with the lyrics of popular songs...The musical moves through 60 songs to tell the story of women as ink blots of American culture...A terrific if sometimes depressing measure of what pop music has said about, how it has indoctrinated, American women in the past 100 years. There couldn’t be a better moment for this show." Full Review

Theater Pizzazz

"It’s for anyone who loves music that makes you want to jump out of your seat and dance...The show features four dynamic and talented women...Each of these ladies shine as they take their turn in the spotlight. They make a strong ensemble with their tight harmonies and also performing solo numbers...A joyful musical aimed at a wide audience. The show is well directed by Tamara Kangas Erickson, with musical direction by Zachary Ryan." Full Review

Times Square Chronicles

"Erickson keeps this show at a clip and allows us to see all the archetypes we have become through out the ages. Her choreography is perfection, as she follows the dances though out the centuries...I can see this high-octane celebration of the American women and where she’s come from and where she’s going, having a long run...Great-grandmothers can take their grandmothers, mothers, and teens. It is a bonding experience." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"A few songs become stories, giving each of the other three female performers opportunities to showcase their skills...Besides the wonderfully familiar music, the show makes effective use of photos...As the ladies sang, we found ourselves identifying the famous people...The show moves quickly and is quite entertaining...It knows how to hit all the right buttons...A show written about women for women. It makes for a great girls’ night out." Full Review

Motherhood Later

“Lighthearted entertainment, but with an empowering message, this Valentine to women through the past 100 + years, will have you dancing in your seat or cheering or both...The talented and versatile cast of four play a multitude of roles and keep things moving...Swindal is a particular standout...This feel good show is particularly timely and relatable given the climate of today’s society. It makes for a fun, uplifting girls night out.” Full Review

ThisbroadSway

“Marcic takes us on a historical journey in this high energy ‘let’s hear it for the girls' new musical...It’s all cleverly told with a colorful list of classic song arrangements that touch on women’s roles that changed history and shaped the world...The set is enhanced by a rear projection screen that helps move you through time as does the lively choreography by Erickson who also directs this little gem...Get ‘Over There’ and show your support today.” Full Review

Washington Square News

"The show promotes female empowerment through the lens of the ideal woman from every time period and leaves the audience feeling inspired and nostalgic for these songs performed by amazing women...This play is perfect for anyone of any age. The bounty of amazing songs means anyone could relate, regardless of age or gender. People were singing along and clapping throughout the entire show." Full Review

DC Metro Theater Arts

“What becomes evident is that...it’s overwhelmingly about the boys, in the vast majority of 'women’s' lyrics...Consequently, the most effective segments in the show are the parodies...The contents of the songs are supported by entertaining segments of period-style dance, themed vintage accessories...and back panels and projections with images of the times and the people who contributed to our socio-cultural view of women and ‘the soundtrack of your life.’” Full Review

Says Me Says Mom

"If you want to learn about the history of women in this country in a fun and interesting way, go and see this musical...There is a little bit of plot involving a woman whose own changing personal history seems to reflect what is going on in the country at the time. However, the plot is slight and not nearly as interesting as the music...The show is still worth seeing, however, because the music and singing are both great and ultimately the music is what is at the heart of this show." Full Review

Theater Life

"The amusing new musical is a series of witty snapshots...Takes a sassy jaunt down the memory lane of the women’s movement with chart topping hits from the past 100 years to punctuate memorable strides by women...Wonderful cast of four women...With hardly a lull in the spirited evening the women sing their hearts out on a host of nostalgic songs." Full Review

Front Row Center

"It boasts a host of memorable music, impressive talent, and lazy insight, scholarship, and politics. It will appeal to those who came of age in the 40s, 50s and 60s, and can ignore the between the songs patter...There is a wealth of vocal power on stage that, had the connecting bits given them any help at all, would have had the audience stomping and screaming...As it is, it kind of feels like exploitation, and an attempt at making a fast buck."
