GIRLS ONLY, written by Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein, is an original comedy that celebrates the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female. With a two-woman cast and audiences full of raucous, laughing ladies, the show has found quick popularity in its unique examination of all things girly. Born out of the earnest and sweetly absurd writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, the GIRLS ONLY mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, and hilarious songs and videos reminds audiences of the very funny and very charming similarities all women share.
"It's really like a girlhood reunion." says Klein. "Our show is highly universal, made personal. It is for all ages of women," adds Gehring.
GIRLS ONLY, lovingly intended for female audiences, actively engages its audience with its high spirited, good-natured style of humor. With reviewers calling Girls Only "an intelligent, astute mélange of scripted sketches and improve...truly brilliant." (Denver Post), it is no wonder that this "two hour celebration of bras, purses, showers, breastfeeding and menopause" (Pittsburgh Tribune) ran continuously for nearly two years at the Denver Centre for the Performing Arts and has playing to nearly a quarter of a million women nationally. Additional productions have played in Des Moines, Charlotte, Winnipeg, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Houston.
