"GR8 in 98" is the story of Stephanie, a 14 year old about to graduate from eighth grade - when Leo really was "King of the World." As she journeys through the summer before high school, she's dealing with crushes, first kisses and learning what her idea of love is all about. In this solo show, already a hit at Toronto's Second City this past spring, comedienne Nicki Gallo lives out the words of Britney Spears: "Not a girl, not yet a woman."
