It was a delight! We saw the musical Bittergirl at the Manitoba Theatre Centre on Saturday. The show was absolutely entertaining from start to finish. Great singing, familiar music, clever staging, a talented band, fast pacing and plenty of humour.
Bittergirl tells the story of three women who have been dumped by the men in their lives. They’ve all had long-term relationships they thought were stable. Then much to their shock and dismay one day their partners just walk out on them. How will they survive? Bittergirl follows the three women as they try to repair their broken hearts.
The show was great but I found out later it isn’t really an accurate reflection of hetrosexual relationship break ups because it is women and not men who initiate the end of relationships about 70 percent of the time. I also found out it is men and not women who suffer the most after a break up.
So maybe they need to make a musical called Bitterboy. I wonder if it would be as popular?
