Meet Mary: She's beautiful, she's nice, and her ski star boyfriend is cheating on her. Meet Crystal: She's a townie, she works at Mod Jeans, and she's cheating with Mary's boyfriend. Meet Sylvia: She's nasty, she's rich, and she's got something up her Prada-designed sleeve. Meet Amber: She's a flake, she's the barista at the hottest coffee shop in Aspen, and she serves up gossip even hotter than grande skim lattes. Meet Peggy: She's Mary's best friend, she's a snowboarder and aspiring chef, and she has no idea how to cope with all these girls. Inspired by "The Women", the classic Clare Booth Luce theater satire about upper-crust New York society women (which featured not one male in the cast), "The Girls" is a quick-witted, stylish comedy about friendships, love, and most importantly, Gossip! This time, an elite Aspen prep school sets the stage for jealousy and intrigue as the lives of many girls intertwine and tangle into a wickedly fun mess (in which no boys ever appear). Fans of "Gossip Girl" will delight in the irrestible cast of "The Girls"!
