Smart Girls at the Party

I was watching In the Actors Studio the other day (random, I know) and it was an episode about Amy Poelher. At the end of the show, she mention a new project she was working on called 'Smart Girls at the Party'.

“…The idea came out of us wishing we had a time machine so we could go back to the younger versions of ourselves and let them know it was gonna be ok.

We wanted to do a show that we would have wanted to watch at that age. And we knew we wanted to have a dance party at the end. We basically started with the dance party and worked backwards…

…Girls have to fight against a lot of the same stuff we did growing up…peer pressure, exploitation, etc. But what worries me the most is this trend that caring about something isn’t cool. That it’s better to comment on something than to commit to it. That it’s so much cooler to be unmotivated and indifferent. Our culture can get so snarky and ironic sometimes and we kind of wanted Smart Girls to celebrate the opposite of that.”

I went to the SMGATP website and fell in love (and on the floor laughing) with a girl named Ruby. Watch this, love her.
