Girls Night: The Musical The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 26 2012

A night on the town turns unexpectedly poignant when four best friends convene to reminisce about the past and provide insight into each others' relationships. Just kidding. They play ring toss on an inflatable dick, sing Gloria Gaynor tunes, toss back shots, and yell things like "That one made my hoohah tickle!" That doesn't stop Louise Roche's otherwise flighty karaoke-standard revue from attempting to delve into substantial topics, and things get a little awkward once the Shake Weight jokes take a hard right to marital regret and miscarriage. Despite some affable hosting by Shelby Garrett, the narrative in between the bar hits feels like filler. The saving grace here is that they sing them well. Really well. Director Sonya Carter's ensemble could peel paint. —Dan Jakes

Price: $45-$65
