bittergirl – the musical

By Annabel Fitzsimmons, Alison Lawrence & Mary Francis Moore

Who knew getting dumped could be so much fun?

Bittergirl – the musical charts the breakups of three women (one single and dating, one co-habiting, one married with a child) and the painfully hilarious antics that ensue. With 60s girl group music punctuating the fast-paced and heartbreakingly funny narrative, Bittergirl – the musical is a sure-fire crowd pleaser.

Fun for all awaits ...The intertwined word play and quick gear shifts between song bites seem so effortless...A flashy, high-energy show…There is nothing overly sentimental here. It’s just a hilarious take on getting dumped. No question, this will be one of the most popular shows of the summer.

Lennie MacPherson, The Guardian Charlottetown, PEI

rib-tickling, belly-achingly hilarious production ...one supremely entertaining musical extravaganza with a story line ..catcalls, whistles, and howls…it was enough to bring the house down with mirth...quick pacing and turnover of lines and songs

Cindy Lapeña , ONRPEI.ca

'bittergirl - The Musical' is a wonderful, heartfelt production that speaks to all women, as we have each been touched at some point by heartbreak and found a way to rebound and someday smile about it. 'bittergirl – the Musical' is an engaging, iconic show that I would certainly pay to see more than once and recommend to all women as a 'must see'.

...a brilliant production that taps into every woman's mind and heart, and some part of each and every woman's life finds its way into the story in an insightful, touching and humourous way. It makes you laugh and it makes you cry.
