About Boiler Room Girls
Boiler Room Girls is an audacious new musical by Kevin Archambault and Cheryl B. Engelhardt. The musical takes a close look at a historic incident in the late 1960's; the politics, relationships, and the events leading up to it. This mystery-meets-social-commentary examines the humanity behind ambition, privilege, and competition. Watch as events unfold that cause six women to form an unbreakable bond of silence, and how they find their true source of power. Watch the announcement video to the right.

A Kennedy Myth & Mystery, Through The Eyes of The Women In The Eye Of The Storm
“Boiler Room Girls.”
The nickname was not hard to come by. The windowless work area in the basement of Senator Robert Kennedy’s Washington, DC campaign offices did, indeed, double as the building’s boiler room. And the “girls” to whom it referred? Well, in 1968, it was equally inevitable, despite the fact that every one of them was in their twenties.
