Event Details

This event finished on 10 September 2023

It’s Barbie’s 60th birthday (she still looks absolutely fabulous, by the way), and she celebrates by reminiscing with us about her innumerable careers, everyone’s obsession with her chest, her on-again-off-again relationship with Ken, and with other characters from her life including GI Joe, She-Ra, Skipper, Annette Funicello, Britney Spears, and her creators Ruth Handler and Jack Ryan. What’s it like being a Barbie Girl in a not-so-Barbie world? Bridge Street Theatre presents the East Coast premiere of Walton Beacham’s raucous, hilarious, and surprisingly touching “I Am Barbie”, August 31-September 10. Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:00pm. Details and tickets at bridgest.org/i-am-barbie/. Come for the laughs, leave with a lump in your throat!
