The Geller Girls Review by Da Vinci #GellerGirls #Atlanta

I had the opportunity to check out The Geller Girls by Atlanta playwright Janece Shaffer this past week and although I was already excited going into it, I don’t think I was truly prepared for how good this play would be. The Geller Girls is set in 1895 Atlanta, Georgia and tells a coming of as story about Geller sisters Rosalee and Louisa.

The Geller Girls addresses a battle that many women still face today; the internal battle of success vs. marriage or spinsterhood. As I watched the play it made me think about all the small liberties and freedoms we take for granted as people, women, and as a black woman today.

The story was very well written and the dialog captivated me from beginning to end. The set changes were amazing in a way that you really felt like you were a part of the story. When everything ended, the only thing I was sad about was the fact that there wasn’t more and I wasn’t able to see where the characters lives would lead… which lets you know the cast did a phenomenal job.

I would definitely recommend ladies checking out The Geller Girls whether you’re a mother and daughter or looking for something to do for a girls night out this would make for a great play to see!
