From the show:

Normal Ave and Leigh Honigman present the world premiere production of "of the woman came the beginning of sin and through her we all die," a dynamic new play by Lily Houghton about the dangers of commercializing millennial femininity. The play follows Bluebell, Sweet Pea, Pumpkin and Bleeding Heart, four femmes bound together by their workplace, a windowless basement occupied by Free People. Allegiances are formed and spells are cast in this hilarious, poignant and topical take on how we navigate femininity and expression in a political and economic climate that are constantly at odds with each other.

Has potential, Dizzying, Relevant, Solid acting

See it if you have a friend in the cast, want to support a young female playwright and predominately female cast

Great staging, Refreshing, Great writing, Funny, Clever

See it if you like subtle messages, good writing, refreshingly different drama

Don't see it if you only want to see traditional drama, musicals or are not interested in something that requires a bit of thinking

73
Thought-provoking, Funny, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if you like spirituality or witchcraft.

Don't see it if you can’t stand a very ditsy character (at the begging of a show).

92
Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You like off-the-beaten path theatre.

Don't see it if You like more traditional musicals
