Cocktails and karaoke provide a potent combo in Louise Roche's Girls Night: The Musical, which opens tonight in Cleveland for a monthlong run. And actress Sonya Carter is getting into her role as the bitter Liza, who grabs the center of attention by behaving badly. "We've all had too much to drink and tried to dance on tables at least once in our lives to drown out depression and worry," she says. "Art truly imitates life in this show." The script also features the brutally honest Anita, party-gal Carol, and designated-driver Kate, with interactive karaoke singing that morphs into one big therapy session. "Our characters laugh because it hurts to cry," says Renée Colvert, who plays Carol. "There's no point in being sad when you're hanging with your best friends." The estrogen flows at 8 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Sunday, July 6, at the Cleveland Play House's Bolton Theatre, 8500 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $39 to $48. Call 216-795-7000 or visit www.clevelandplayhouse.com.
Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: June 12. Continues through July 6, 2008
