Little Black Dress The Girls’ Night Out Musical A Perfect Fit for


DES MOINES, IA – From Coco Chanel’s 1926 Ford dress, Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Lady Di’s revenge dress to Liz Hurley’s jaw dropping Versace, the little black dress’ silhouette has changed over the years -- but like the many women who wear them – it’s capacity for reinvention seems limitless. The LBD in every woman’s wardrobe is the inspiration behind, Little Black Dress The Musical, a brand new production featuring an original script and score from the hilarious women of Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody. Little Black Dress makes its Temple Theater debut from Jan. 22­–26, 2020.

Little Black Dress follows the story of Dee (Danni Davis) and her best friend Mandy (Jennette Cronk) experiencing life through their little black dresses - first job interview, first date, first awkward sexual experience, second awkward sexual experience and more! Using hilarious improv, catchy songs, and a heartfelt story, Little Black Dress has made audiences across the globe laugh, cry, and party! The touring cast also includes Rachel McLaughlan and Clint Hromsco; and is brought to life by a writing team that includes Danielle Trzcinski (SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody!), Natalie Tenenbaum (Tony-nominated Mean Girls Broadway) and Toronto natives Amanda Barker (Sirius XM’s Canada Laughs), and Christopher Bond (DISENCHANTED, Evil Dead The Musical!).

Deemed the fearlessly funny girls’ night out musical Little Black Dress is the perfect show for every bachelorette party, birthday, anniversary, reunion, date night and is a-must see for any man looking to decode the mystery of every woman’s secret weapon - the LBD.
