HOT MESS IN MANHATTAN: THE MUSICAL



Through obvious similar interests, I have had the pleasure of getting to know the hilarious and talented Cait Doyle, producer of upcoming musical Hot Mess in Manhattan, debuting in New York at the American Theater of Actors for a two-week run beginning August 31 through September 10!

Hot Mess in Manhattan is a high-heeled, low-brow musical comedy following one 20-something woman trying to conquer the big city the only way she knows how: the Way of Carrie Bradshaw. Armed with a score featuring a dozen of musical theater's hottest new composers and one worn-out pair of Blahniks, she confronts her greatest fear: if Sex and the City lied, then what's to become of a Hot Mess in Manhattan?

Cait shared with me that she has been developing this musical for four years, amazed at how many disillusioned girls (like yours truly) actually thought the island of Manhattan and post-college life was going to be very different than what reality handed them...all because that's what we saw on TV when watching our favorite girlfriends -- Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.

An exclusive sneak peak of one of the show's musical numbers, Dear Carrie Bradshaw:
{Favorite line:  "You eat and drink and eat and drink and somehow stay petite."  Haven't we all wondered that about our dear Carrie?}


With a fabulous team behind her (you can see a full list of these shout outs here), the journey is far from over.    The team behind Hot Mess in Manhattan needs our help!!  In order to mount an extended NYC run and begin licensing future regional productions, they need some financial support.

Reasons you should donate:


If you donate, you're helping create a groundbreaking new art...and you are also helping reach lots of other girls who also fill a little ripped off by SATC! 

You can find more info on why and how to support the musical here and here.

And don't forget to tweet and facebook to all your best girlfriends to see this show if they're in the area!!!
