About the show
A new entertainment by Ex.Pgirl
Read the Village Voice's review!
Each year, a dozen or so 30-something Japanese women go to Paris on vacation, only to lose their minds. The six women of Ex.Pgirl take you on a madcap journey to their 'Paris': a riotous world of delusion and wild disappointment.
