The American Girls Revue

By Gretchen Cryer (Book and Lyrics) and Nancy Ford (music)

Directed by Molly Rhode

Celebrating the stories of the girls from the American Girls books, The American Girls Revue weaves the stories together through song, dance, and scenes in a spirited musical revue. Characters such as Kit Kitteridge, Addy, Josefina, and others come to life onstage. The American Girls Revue is based on the books of The American Girls Collection (c) by Valerie Tripp, Janet Shaw, Connie Porter and Susan Adler and played for over a decade at The American Girls Place in Chicago. This is an exclusive run celebrating the 25th anniversary of American Girls.
