About the Show

June 2016


2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and form a bond over their dream to one day own their own successful cupcake business. Only one thing stands in their way: They’re broke. Sarcastic, street-smart Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess was having a run of bad luck as a result of her father’s Wall Street scandal, which caused her to lose all her money and try waitressing. Max was surprised that Caroline had as much substance as style. Caroline learned that Max had a knack for baking cupcakes and visualized a lucrative future for them. With some financial help from a friend, they opened a cupcake shop, lost the shop and opened an after-hours cupcake window at the diner. Now the girls have turned their cupcake window into a Dessert Bar and become part owners of the diner, where they’re trying to build their business while continuing to wait tables. At the diner, they’re surrounded by their offbeat, colorful “work family” – Oleg, the overly flirtatious cook; his pregnant wife, Sophie, who is the girls’ outrageous upstairs neighbor; Earl, the hip 75-year-old cashier; and Han, the eager-to-please part owner of the diner.  As the girls work their way together out of “broke,” they realize they’re much more alike – and that there’s much more to like about each other – than they thought.
