Clever, Raunchy, Quirky, Relevant, Intelligent

See it if Playful historical satire with feminist and political themes. Fun singing and acting with an energetic live band. Witty pop song parodies.

Don't see it if You want to avoid explicit sexual material. You wouldn't enjoy the lampooning of powerful men and the women who pursue them.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Raunchy

See it if you would enjoy a one-woman powerhouse singing in the voices of various first ladies/mistresses with wit and charm. Cabaret performance.

Don't see it if you are easily offended by sexual content; you don't enjoy "dinner theater" type of venue; you are not into one woman shows.

"A laugh riot...Vlahinos has infused humor in history to lampoon one of the most infamous news cycles in our history...Using parodies of pop hits through the ages, the musical not only showcases Vlahinos' effortless performance but her stellar writing. Some of the songs strike stronger than others, but on the whole, Vlahinos has found a way to an include a spectrum of styles that remain cohesive to her storytelling."

"The lively, raucous and ribald theatre piece, created and performed by the versatile Erica Vlahinos, who inhabits all of these lively ladies, is an entertaining romp through sexual history...What is great fun is the choice of the music. Each of the women is well-defined by the song selections...Vlahinos is a confident and clever actress, singer and lyricist...If the show has some flaws, they are clearly outranked by the virtues to be found in the vices of our presidents."
