New Dark Comedy Musical In Concert: A Girl I Know, feat. Chloe Lowery, Roe Hartrampf, & More!
February 4, 2022
Written by John Riley (Composer/Lyrics) and Kate Queen (Lyrics/Book), and featuring Chloe Lowery, Roe Hartrampf, Andrew O’Shanick, Stephanie Lynne Mason, Cody Gerszewski, and Lena Chung (Beetlejuice), A Girl I Know the musical tells the story of a beautiful masseuse, Jeni, who can’t stop murdering cheating men until she meets a suicidal client who thinks he can fix her.
Jeni is smart, sexy, funny, successful, and… a completely deranged serial killer (hey, no one’s perfect). Her process is pretty simple. If a married client asks for a bit more than she offers on her professional massage menu, they get tortured and killed by her dainty bare hands. She loves to hear them scream for their lives, a big part of her process. This all changes when she meets a man who reacts a little differently to her attack… he welcomes it, even begs for her to kill him.
Jeni lets him go but is intrigued by what she considers to be unfinished business. She stalks him, kills his wife, and romances him. He genuinely believes he can fix her and falls madly in love (did we mention she’s REALLY hot?). He proposes and thinks, for once, everything is going to be okay. But the thing is…
Jeni is a sociopath.
Feminine, fun, and fucked-up… Think Elle Woods in Legally Blonde meets Patrick Bateman in American Psycho for our protagonist starring in a dark but relatable love story set to original music with a mix of jazz, rock and traditional musical tunes.
A film version of A Girl I Know is currently in pre-production in Los Angeles and will be directed by award-winning German director Marcel Walz.
