Unlocking The Secrets Of Women!

The play production of "Girls Only" on this particular theatre night out in Minneapolis had unexpected surprises and some exciting connections that went far beyond just a regular “Girl’s Night Out.” 





For me, it was a RELATABLE woman connection, a HUMOROUS connection and a PERSONAL connection. 

When settling into our seats at this play, it became very apparent that if you didn't own a pair of BOOBIES and a HOO HA, you were in the minority. 

The whole audience consisted of women and, maybe, five guys.

The play, after all, was called "Girls Only - The Secret Comedy of Women!” Click on the title link for more information to this fantastic show. 

When first walking in, I knew this wasn't going to be any ordinary play. Only two women made up the cast.  There wasn’t a fancy grand entrance to start the show. In fact, these two women were already visibly on stage before the show even started, in character and in costume, which consisted of only their bra and underwear.


Right there, I knew, not only are these women totally and completely confident with their stage presence, but clearly they were toting a great sense of humor!  

I was in awe of this confidence. 

It got my attention. 

I'm sure this was the whole idea to draw us in.

This makes for my FIRST connection. RELATABLE to women – the idea was to point out body image and what women face DAILY with our own personal insecurities. Kudos to these women for putting their RIGHT and LEFT boob forward to show we're all in this together!

The SECOND connection, was right up my lane, it was dang funny – presenting it in a HUMOROUS package and being able to LAUGH at ourselves when remembering those awkward adolescent years that were innocently logged in a diary.

Also, the revealing of some hilarious uses for Maxi Pads and Tampons was pure genius! Think floor Swiffer and Christmas tree ornaments!  These are only a couple of the crazy good ideas.

However, the best was a choreographed ballet interpretation of these ladies putting on pantyhose.  I won’t be able to put on pantyhose the same EVER again! Not without orchestrated music, at least!!

The THIRD connection, a more PERSONAL one – took us afterwards, to actually meet the writers and creators of the show. The two women, who had written the script and brought their story to the stage, had first met at Improv theatre.  They had collaborated together for this show’s creation and initially played themselves in the beginning. 

The whole production has now grown larger than their expectations and has played in many cities..how GREAT is that!

As someone who has dabbled in a little Improv acting and, now developing, my hand at writing, this was great stuff to hear! 

Golden nuggets of info from women who actually started from scratch and worked hard at their accomplishments. 

This "Girls Only" production was truly eye opening, inspiring and a laugh out loud good time. It unlocked some meaningful secrets of women. 

In addition, it was a great night out with a terrific friend sharing our own personal girly stories and laughing at all our goofy experiences! 

To top it off, WOMEN BONDING wouldn't be complete without a parting GIFT!



Yes...you see correctly. I think I'll keep this one as a memento. 

WEIRD, maybe? But, how often do you get a feminine sanitary product that actually brings a "feel good" moment!

So, if you don’t mind, I’ll INSERT that comfortably into my MEMORY box!! 



If "Girls Only" is scheduled in your CITY- GO SEE IT!  

After the laughs, enjoy "a square of chocolate."



Put your smile on,
