Due to popular demand, the musical smash THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS will add Wednesday matinees to the playing schedule beginning tomorrow, June 13th. The Off-Broadway hit recently put a new block of seats on sale through September 5th. Initially set to run to the end of 2017, that marked the second extension for THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS, which opened October 27th to unanimous rave reviews.

THIS ONE’S FOR THE GIRLS isn’t just for the girls! This “fabulous, heart stopping” new musical (Times Square Chronicles) looks at the role of women over the past 100+ years through iconic popular song hits. From the sad laments of fragile female victims (“As Long as He Needs Me”) 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 proven to thrill men, women and everything in between!
