HOUSTON – I W Marks Jewelers presents Girls Only - The Secret Comedy of Women, the original hit comedy celebrating the honor, truth, humor and silliness of being female, comes to Houston after smashing engagements in Denver (586 performances), Minneapolis, Charlotte and Pittsburgh. The show will be at Main Street Theatre – Chelsea Market, 4617 Montrose Blvd. (in the Museum District).
Featuring a two-woman cast, Girls Only mixes sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation, hilarious songs and videos in a unique examination of all things girly. It reminds women that they all have very funny and very charming feminine similarities.
Starring Houston actresses, Tracy Ahern and Keri Henson, Girls Only was created by Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein, two accomplished Denver actresses who adapted the earnest and sweetly absurd writings they discovered in their girlhood diaries. The show has since been enjoyed by over a quarter million women nationwide.
Houston theater audiences will remember Ahern at Main Street Theater as Edna in June Moon, Maria in Experiment with an Air Pump and Stupefying” Jones in Lil’ Abner. She has also appeared at Houston’s Masquerade Theatre, the Long Beach (CA) Playhouse and in four films. One of Ahern’s favorite parts was Galinda, the Good Witch of the North in the American Family Theatre’s national tour of The Wizard of Oz.
Henson, a fun loving, daredevil mother of three has sky-dived, hot-air ballooned and had a ball as a morning DJ on a morning drive-time radio show in Abilene. She has appeared in classics like Shakespeare’s A Midsummmer’s Night Dream” and in such modern productions as “The Vagina Monologues.” Henson also appeared in the independent film, Paramount.
