Featured Video: Whole Lot Outta Life from Manson’s Girls

This week’s Featured Video at New Musicals, Inc. is from “Manson’s Girls,” the story of the Manson Family murders, told from the perspective of the girls. In this clip, four of Manson’s Girls rehearse a mock-protest, longing for a world in which “The Man” isn’t in charge anymore

“Manson’s Girls” was nominated for Best Musical at the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival and voted Best Musical by Tvolution and Pick of the Fringe by Combined Art Form, with music by Ron Barnett, lyrics by Mitch Glaser, and book by Scott Guy.  Directed by Scott Guy with Music Direction from Ron Barnett. This excerpt features Megan Ruble as Sadie Mae, with l. to r.: Lauran Dewey (Squeaky), Christina Anatone (Marioche) and Lia Peros (Big Patty).

With a driving, rock score and book/lyrics which explore the psyche of the girls, this story is all-too-relevant today, being a parable and warning to any of us who follows the voice of authority without stopping to question. An exciting electric fringe production from New Musicals Inc.
