Randal Myler directed the production featuring Sally Mayes (She Loves Me), Teri Ralston (Company), Lauren Kennedy (Spamalot), Liza Vann (Machiavelli) and Gina Stewart ("Dawson's Creek"). Good Ol' Girls was penned by Lee Smith and Jill McCorkle, adapted by Paul Ferguson and features songs by Nashville hit-makers Matraca Berg (Reba McEntire, Dixie Chicks, Faith Hill) and Marshall Chapman (Jimmy Buffett, Wynonna, Olivia Newton-John). The production, which features a four-piece band, is described as "a musical about love, loss and laughter . . . [which] celebrates childhood through old age with big hair and bigger hearts."
