Vanities: A New Musical (2011)
In Vanities: A New Musical, you’ll set off on a life-affirming journey through the turbulent ’60s to the late ’80s and discover how three friends face life’s defining moments: growing up, getting older and getting over it. Vanities is a funny and poignant look at three women who discover that, even in 30 years of rapidly changing times, the one thing they can rely on is each other. Based on the original play Vanities by Jack Heifner.
