Clever, Delightful, Funny, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy improv and sketch comedy, if you consider yourself a feminist, and if you want to watch something fun and relevant.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy this type of comedy or if you are uncomfortable with even light audience participation.

Banal, Clever, Disappointing, Indulgent, Original

See it if you enjoy sketch comedy for the moments that drift into improv; you like stories about unconventional girls and women; you embrace awkward

Don't see it if you're looking for genderqueer or trans content; you like your women of a certain daintiness; you hate it when actors break on stage

Original, Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful, Refreshing

See it if You are a fan of strong, hilarious women who are fearless performers. This show was so original and fun! I laughed out loud the whole time.

Don't see it if Improv/Sketch is not your thing. Though even if its not, you should try something new. These women rock it!

Quirky, Fluffy, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You enjoy sketch comedy and short character studies.

Don't see it if You prefer a show with a high polish. This is more improvisational, and that's a risk you have to be willing to take.

Theatre is Easy
August 15th, 2016

"'The sketch style and quick pacing shows off the team’s Second City writing chops, and the cast demonstrates their performance range…'GIRLish' is short, and because there is so much packed in, it can feel scattered at times...But the jokes are sharp and the energy never drops. Overall, the sincerity of the show and the tight chemistry of Bellisle and Anderson make for a solid, upbeat revue. Feminist-ish, empowering-ish, poignant-ish, 'GIRLish' is quick, clever, and fun."
