Directed by resident choreographer of Chanhassen Dinner Theatres, Tamara Erickson, the show is best known as a high-energy celebration of American women.

Why Watch This One’s For The Girls

A visual spectacle that merges sociological research with a jukebox musical, ‘This One’s For the Girls’ brings out the best of Professor and Playwright, Dorothy Marcic. Jam-packed, exciting and energetic, the show features excerpts from over 60 hit pop songs about women are vocalized by women. Experience a show that transcends time and carefully crafts a story tracing female history, roles and attitudes among women in 20th century America backed by fact and research. From the sad laments of early 20th century female victims, the angry anthems of women till women getting freedom and equality, the show aptly portrays the narrative of American women in the 20th century, adding to it doses of adrenaline-pumping music and lyrics.

The Story

Janet, the academic writer, presents the show from the perspective of a narrator. She presents her own story along with the findings on the portrayal of women from 1900 into the new millennium, interspersing excerpts from 63 famous songs with famous figures, historical facts, personal anecdotes and more. Take a journey through time as you see women shift from homes to workplaces, their displacement from their jobs after the war, the teenage desperation of longing for a boyfriend, the rage of being hurt and controlled and the feminist anthems of empowerment and breaking free. The show’s socio-cultural canvas is carefully painted by the view of women across the century, and offers a deeper, more humane, understanding of women suffrage and other problems women face in the modern world.

Critics Reviews

“This is a show where great grandmothers can take their grandmothers, mothers and teens. It is a bonding experience, despite the fact it becomes clear that though we are women we have always longed, needed and depended on men. This is the moment, when as women, we say it will be better, we are stronger and we will make a difference.Maybe now we can break that chain of thought and become independent enough to be equals.”
– Times Square Chronicle

““Dorothy Marcic pulls off a feat of theatrical legerdemain, writing an entertaining jukebox musical that also has an important message. Tamara Kangas Erickson’s direction and choreography give This One’s For the Girls a pleasantly sincere gloss bringing out the humanity in each character and her joy in telling this story in music and movement.”
