  The Girl Most Likely To at The Los Angeles Theatre Center

The Girl Most Likely To

The Los Angeles Theatre Center
514 S. Spring St. Los Angeles

A Filipino-American boy wants nothing more than to be accepted for who he is. Forget that he likes wearing girl’s clothes to school and breaks out to do impromptu Christina Aguilera songs. That’s nothing compared to the trouble he is headed. A funny, heart-wrenching, sweet play about owning your self.

LA Weekly - Recommended

"...Despite disconcerting tonal shifts, it’s a lively show. But its final message seems to be that the cross-dresser’s lot is not a happy one. There are solid performances by de Ocampo, Raphael, de Leon, Schulman, and Raphael, plus a telling turn by Mandela Bellamy as the needy girl who befriends and then betrays the Boy."

"...Even if someone living under that proverbial rock doesn’t know the fate of Araujo, it would be difficult to anticipate a happy ending as Premsrirat’s story unfolds, but under the bold, erotically charged leadership of director Jon Lawrence Rivera, who is blessed with a gamely inspired cast and design team, all the razzle-dazzle helps cushion the final blow—figuratively and literally."

"...Under the direction of Jon Lawrence Rivera, the work has all of the markers of an after school special, but one that is effortlessly charming and easy to indulge in."

"...Playwright Michael Premsrirat takes these two characters—separated by an ocean and several decades—and ties their stories together quite extraordinarily in The Girl Most Likely, now getting its World Premiere production under the truly inspired direction of Jon Lawrence Rivera."

LA Stage Times - Recommended

"...The ending is harrowing, but most of the play is laced with generally joyous scenes set in the Filipino club where the drag queen performs, which prevents the production from being as grim and gritty as you might expect."
