Women wielding weapons, the signature of Babes With Blades, drive this plucky action-packed performance noir from playwright Eric Simon and director Leigh Barrett. The title character, a girl Friday, is the real brains behind the Sam Lowell Detective Agency, where she's waiting for her chance to see some action; Bo's dry humor and charm, ably presented by Megan Schemmel, work alongside a seriously threatening glare when she's accosted. Her big break, a case of arson at an orphanage, leads to some engaging twists and turns featuring a reclusive heiress and orphanage employees with big secrets. The stage combat, designed by JKChoreography, is nerve-wracking and stylish. —Marissa Oberlander
