Sara Brown A big theater nerd with even bigger dreams to write about it. People who can do five turns and sing at the same time astound me. My favorite musical is "Catch Me if You Can."

As a musical theatre nerd, but broke college student, I have heard the cast recording to The Book of Mormon and watched the Tony's performances many times, but have never seen the show in full. Nevertheless, I thought I was pretty prepared for what I was getting myself into when I went and saw it at Music Hall. I was wrong.

As a woman, I know that we go through a lot of struggles, and I'm not even talking politically. There's the fact that you can be a C cup at one store but a B cup at another, there is a ton of pressure from the media to be thin, and don't even get me started on panty hose. But that's where the women of 'Girls Only-The Secret Comedy of Women' come in.

I was pretty excited to see this show, I do not usually look anything up about a show if I do not know a whole lot about it; I like to go in completely blind. But a minute into this show I started to panic, I knew nothing about Janis Joplin. I guess I should have known from the title what I was in for, but I expected it to be a play where I would learn about her (a la Jersey Boys style), but this was a rock concert, so I started to feel like I would not be able to do a good job reviewing this show. I mean I'm a 90's baby. The first album I ever bought was a two-disc compilation of Britney Spears and 'N SYNC songs, followed by Spiceworld. So what would I know about a 60's rock and roll singer with a love for the blues?

During a show, clapping after a song is the norm, as is giving a standing ovation after the show is over, theatergoers are used to that. What I have never seen is an audience give a standing ovation after a song, but that is exactly what I saw when I went to see JERSEY BOYS at Bass Performance Hall.
