“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.’”

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

“What becomes evident is’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.’”

"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."

"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."
