Due to overwhelming demand, Off-Broadway’s musical smash THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS today put a new block of seats on sale through June 30th. Initially set to run to the end of 2017, THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS,by Dorothy Marcic, opened October 27th.
THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS isn’t just for the girls! This new musical looks at the role of women over the past 100+ years through iconic popular song hits. From the sad laments of fragile female victims (“A Bird in a Gilded Cage”) to the angry anthems of women who are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore (“I Am Woman” and “You Don’t Own Me”), THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS is an electrifying celebration of American women that’s certain to thrill men, women and everything in between!
Under the direction of tamara Kangas Erickson, THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS stars Traci Bair (CIRQUE DREAMS, PANDORA’S BOX), Aneesa Folds (RAGTIME, SISTAS), Jana Robbins (Broadway’s GYPSY, THE TALE OF THE ALLERGIST’S WIFE, CRIMES OF THE HEART), and Haley Swindal (Broadway’s JEKYLL & HYDE, THE SECRET GARDEN at Lincoln Center), with music direction by Zachary Ryan.
Writer Dorothy Marcic also created the hit musical SISTAS, the longest-running African American musical in New York history, now in its seventh smash year. Her first musical RESPECT (the genesis for THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS) played in over 70 U.S. cities. Dr. Marcic is a professor at Columbia University, a former Fulbright Scholar and author of 14 books including MANAGING WITH THE WISDOM OF LOVE, RESPECT: WOMEN AND POPULAR MUSIC and, most recently, LOVE LIFT ME HIGHER.
