I'm looking for something funny to choreograph for 2 teenage girls as a musical theatre duet. Neither one wants to play a male role. Any suggestions would be much appreciated -- I'm running out of time!!!

"There's Gotta Be Something Better Than This" from Sweet Charity might be good. Easy to sing, funny number, lots of dancing. It can easily be done with two or three girls.

Almost anything from Side Show
"The More You Ruv Someone" from Avenue Q
"For Good" from Wicked
"What is this feeling?" from Wicked
"I know him so well" from Chess
"Some things are meant to be" from Little Women
"Take Me or Leave Me" from Rent
"Hear My Song" from Songs for a New World (it's a stretch but it could work)

you could probably do "what is the feeling?" from Wicked and just leave out the chorus in the background. That's definately a funny song to choreograph and sing

"Marry The Man Today" from "Guys & Dolls" might work. It's one of the greatest female duets in musical comedy history.

Single Man Drought from I Love You're Perfect Now Change is histerical! But you need 2 guys as props for it to work but its def a great woman duet

Leave Me Alone from Side Show is funny too.

In Harmony from The Little Mermaid series ... there's a karaoke out there somewhere for it. My sister and I recorded it... very cute song

Sisters ... Doris Day and Rosemary Clooney sing it. Another cute one.

You can turn alot of female solos into duets easily.

I've seen 'Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better' done by two girls, and it was just as hilarious.

"What is this feeling" could be really cute.
Pretty pretty please don't you ever ever feel like you're less than f**ckin' perfect!

In the sheet music, What is This Feeling is rewritten leaving out the towns peoples parts. I would suggest this if you're going for funny.

well, you could do:
"hammer to fall" from we will rock you, which would be interesting and funny, it is a brilliant song.
"My philosophy" From your a good man charlie Brown, also very amusing.
"My child" from Blood brothers
"Got love" from zanna.. don't!
"how the other half of me lives" from thoroughly modern millie
andd....
"you can't stop the beat" from hairspray
I would lay off the wicked songs... theyre sort of untouchable uunless your going to do them really really good!

I'm surprised this one hasn't already been suggested - Bosom Buddies from Mame.

Desiree, beat me to the punch, "The Grass Is Always Greener" from WOMAN OF THE YEAR definitely beats most of the numbers mentioned on this thread. There's also "Best Friends" from THE WILD PARTY and "Bossom Buddies" from MAME which was mentioned already.

Kinda OT: but I also need some duet songs for two females. And these suggestions are great.

But does anyone know the song list of the concert that Patti LuPone and Audra McDonald did at the Hollywood Bowl and are doing this summer at the Ravinia? My friend and I have pretty much the exact same ranges as the two of them and have already worked on Happy Days/Get Happy

"We Make A Beautiful Pair" from SHENENDOAH, the duet from RAGS. Both are on the first Skinner/Ripley album, but I prefer the OBC for the SHENANDOAH song. It's lovely -- I always wondered why, say, Martina McBride and someone didn't do it for a country album. Cries out for it.
