"The songs are lovely and sung with depth, beauty, strength, and confidence.”

- Peter Filichia, BROADWAY RADIO

“Kirshenbaum’s score is as charming as ever and has three strong voices to do it.”

- Hayley Levitt, THEATERMANIA

“With Pomerantz and his winning company on board, Vanities–The Musical remains not only diverting but endearing!”

- Elysa Gardner, NY STAGE REVIEW

Vanities–The Musical is a heartfelt and humorous chronicle of the lives of three women, Joanne, Kathy, and Mary, tracing them from their late teen years through adulthood. They grow and change, testing the limits of what they thought they knew about themselves, as well as the narrow views of women society has presented them.

Based on the hugely successful play of the same name by Jack Heifner (who also wrote the book for the musical), the action takes us through three decades in these women’s lives from 1963 to 1990. Starting as vivacious small-town cheerleaders and best friends in high school, then sorority sisters in college, and, finally, women with separate and very different lives, they travel unique journeys that will ultimately bring them back together, giving them the chance to encounter each other once again—mature women able to face one another with honesty and compassion.

Featuring an infectious and melodic score by David Kirshenbaum, which playfully echoes the genres of music from the three decades contained within the play, Vanities—The Musical celebrates the power of women and their unique bonds of friendship.
