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?
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.
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.
