Created by Amanda Schoonover and Brenna Geffers

This winter Barrymore Award-winning actress and Philadelphia favorite Amanda Schoonover will take the stage in the expanded world premiere of THE IT GIRL, co-created with acclaimed avant-garde director Brenna Geffers. This one of a kind theatrical experience explores our never-ending hunger for the next hot thing out of Hollywood and the disturbing phenomenon of the disposable starlet. Part silent film, part vaudeville variety show, and wholly heartbreaking, THE IT GIRL takes you back to the beginning – to Clara Bow, the “it girl” who started it all.
