“Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner.” – Dirty Dancing
“I wrote Chick Flick the Musical as a love letter to chick flicks because they celebrate female friendships and hope,” said Suzy Conn. “Personally, I need happy endings to get through my days and there’s nothing like a good chick flick to deliver that hit of endorphins. I was excited to explore the iconic conventions of this emotion-based genre because they have created a shared language between women. Using that shared language enabled me to convey a message of empowerment in a fun and entertaining way. Delivering this story of friendship as a piece of live musical theatre is the perfect way to honor this shared sisterhood – seeing Chick Flick the Musical with an audience of fellow chick flick lovers will be a unique bonding experience. As Cher says in Mamma Mia Here We Go Again – ‘That’s the best kind of party, little girl.'”
