"Girls Night: The Musical"
KALAMAZOO--"Girls Night: The Musical" will visit Western Michigan University's Miller Auditorium for three performances Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23-24. Shows begin at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday.

Five girlfriends go from heartbreak to happiness during a wild night of karaoke in this feel-good comedy by British playwright, author and television producer, Louise Roche. "Girls Night" follows five friends in their 30s and 40s during a wild and outrageous girls night out at a karaoke bar. Friends since their teens, they have all had their fair share of heartache and tragedy, joy and success.

Among the characters are Carol the party girl, blunt Anita who tells it like it is, Liza with her marital issues, boring Kate the designated driver, and Sharon, the not-so-angelic angel who just couldn't resist tagging along. Together, they reminisce about their younger days, celebrate their lives and look to the future, all the while belting out an array of classic anthems such as "I Will Survive," "Lady Marmalade," "It's Raining Men," "Man I Feel Like a Woman" and "Girls Just Want to Have Fun."

The musical has earned rave reviews playing packed houses throughout the United Kingdom since 2003. It premiered in the United States in May 2007 and has toured across the country since then. The show has been described as "'Desperate Housewives' meets 'Mamma Mia,'" Applause Magazine; "An infectious, exhilarating sense of intoxication," Hollywood Reporter; and "As funny and outrageous as 'Sex and the City,'" Advocate.
