“The Secret Comedy of Women,” written and performed by Barbara Gehring and Linda Klein, has found quick popularity in its unique examination of all things girly.

Born out of the earnest and sweetly absurd writings the two authors discovered in their girlhood diaries, “The Secret Comedy of Women’s” mix of sketch comedy, improvisation, audience participation and hilarious songs and videos reminds audiences of the very funny and very charming similarities all women share. “It’s really like a girlhood reunion,” says Ms. Klein.

“Our show is highly universal, made personal. It is for all ages of women,” adds Ms. Gehring, who also said the show is perfect for group outings for “families, book clubs, social groups, professional organizations and work friends,” among others.

“The Secret Comedy of Women,” lovingly intended for female audiences, actively engages its audience with its high spirited, good-natured style of humor. Performances are 2 p.m. Wednesdays, 2 and 7 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays.
