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?

Banal, Disappointing, Dated, Slow

See it if You're a glutton for punishment or if you missed it the first time around and just want to see the play.

Don't see it if You are expecting it to live up to the hype of the original production. With a few exceptions this cast and director don't deliver.

Laughless, Excruciating

Don't see it if I'm 2 for 2 on disappointment with this playwright, so she's clearly not my cup of tea.

Undercooked, Raunchy, Dated, Cynical

See it if you're so committed to loving a "girls can behave badly and be unlikable too!" mantra that you forgive a pretty pedestrian production.

Don't see it if you expected any depth or a lot of laughs - however few laugh lines in the script were stepped on by a cast that seemed under-rehearsed.

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...
