Basically, they’re everything you need from a night out.
What makes [Run Girl Run] entertaining is that it’s just hilariously funny, at every level. The script is conversational and witty, the performances are wonderfully comedic, and the premise is delightfully absurd.

If you like the idea of being the personal playthings of a cabaret catastrophe, ladies and gentlemen, this is your show. You will cringe, you will squirm. Then you will laugh, get wet, fall in love, trip out, and leave the venue reborn
