3Broads on Relationships

 

Come enjoy an evening of songs and witty banter with Jill Greenman, Lisa Bowker, and Angel Underhill as they reflect on the sometimes challenging and occasionally hilarious world of relationships.  Exploring a wide variety of topics like unrequited love, mothers and daughters, food, and religion, these three broads will tell it like it is and maybe like it ain't. .  It's rated PG13 for a bit of language and nudity (just kidding about the nudity) So in the words of Bette Davis, a famous fellow "broad," "Fasten your seat belts, it's gonna be a bumpy night!"
