About the show

Carly J. Bauer Productions and Mark Brystowski, in association with Untitled Theater Collective present a revival of Leslye Headland’s pitch-black comedy about female frenemies. More…

When narcissistic mean girls Gena, Katie, and Regan descend upon a former friend’s wedding night, it is prime time for misbehaving. 'Bachelorette' explores the incredulous inner and outer lives of three over-medicated, toxic women seeking validation by any means. In the early morning hours of Becky’s wedding day friendships will be tested, lines will be cut, messes will be made, and no one makes it out unscathed. This shows begs the question: Are the self-destructive worth saving?

Indulgent, Cliched, Overdone, Entertaining

See it if perennial premise done with little novelty. All shades of self indulgence. Gotta love Mean Girls to begin with. Uneven talent.

Don't see it if It has potential but needs better reining of some actors. Less is more. Production is more cheap looking than usual off-off.

Cliched, Disappointing, Entertaining, Uneven

See it if You like watching catty female drama (Mean Girls, Jawbreaker, Vanderpump Rules etc.) Has some funny moments.

Don't see it if Production isn't great. Acting all over the place. Katie is SO obnoxious/over the top/distracting at start. Really detracts from enjoyment.

Also The show has potential, the execution is not great but if the actors c... Read more Read less

What happens to girls gone wild when they grow up

See it if /for searing portrait of self-hatred/self-destructive behavior of young women who define their lives based on status of relationships w/ men

Don't see it if /since satire of over-the-top hedonistic behavior evokes no laughs, acting uneven; this is shadow of acclaimed 2010 production

Intense, Indulgent, Fluffy, First preview issues, Disappointing

See it if you are a millennial who loves watching actors performing characters based on yourself, if somewhat over doing it; you like "mean girls".

Don't see it if millennials bore you, with their foul language, "like" talk, self absorption, and self destructiveness. May improve as performances progres

51
Disappointing, Banal, Excruciating, Slow, Indulgent

See it if you enjoy watching selfish bitches cursing for 90 minutes. Doesn't get interesting until the last character enters with just 15 min. to go.

Don't see it if if you have something better to do.

60
Entertaining, Intelligent, Relevant, Cliched, Intense

See it if you're a millennial who wants to see some hard truths, enjoys depictions of drug-taking and excessive drinking, don't mind cliche characters

Don't see it if you don't care about the selfie-millennial generation; are bored by whining; angered by fat shaming; upset by scenes of near-fatal drugging.

Overrated, Great staging, Entertaining, Insipid, Slow

See it if You love drama. This show is mainly a guy playing with a whole bunch of girls' feelings and it's pretty dramatic.

Don't see it if You don't like fake set ups very much. A lot of the show (not saying all of it) is staged. Most of the time it's acting.

"A first-rate new revival…This production festers with as much dark intensity as the blistering original...Headland's smartly crafted script gives each person her or his due. Similarly, Headland's brutally funny, wickedly heartbreaking dialogue helps define each character's personality with great...

“This revival of Leslye Headland’s 2010 comedy is as caustic and outrageous as ever. While looking ahead to a wedding day is supposed to generate feelings of excitement and bliss, this is often times not the case with several different personalities in the same room. It can be a very stress...

"Young, single women trapped in the limbo between responsibility and hedonism. Headland’s gift is that she doesn’t push them into choosing a side, at least not before they’re ready. This comes to the surface beautifully in the revival, as director Hannah T. Wolff allows them to be as ugly as they...
