BAD GIRLS – Union Theatre

In London theatre, Musicals, Opinion, Reviews by Jonathan BazLeave a Comment

Ten years after it opened (and swiftly closed) in the West End, there’s a fringe revival of this tuneful take on life in a women’s prison. Drawn from Bad Girls, their popular TV series, Chadwick and McManus took the programme’s characters and location and fashioned them into a full blown musical. That it only lasted two months is not surprising – the plot lines are predictable and the characters are, for the most part, clichéd caricatures.
