In Beautiful Disaster Kritzer recounts her tumultuous senior year of high school. The sarcastic and heartfelt show transports audience members back in time to 1995, as a voice-over states, "Before Lena Dunham became Jesus...Before anyone cared about what you wrote on your social media...Before Russell Crowe ruined Les Miserables."
Krizter, who has performed in Broadway and Off-Broadway productions (The Memory Show, Elf, Legally Blonde, A Catered Affair, Sondheim on Sondheim and Hairspray), co-wrote Beautiful Disaster with director Randy Blair (Fat Camp, Perez Hilton Saves the Universe, Spidermusical). Performed with a band (Alec Berlin, Mark Vander Poel, Jay Mack and Vadim Feichtner) and two back-up singers (Hilaire C. Smith and Sydney Angel), the show plunges straight into what Kritzer says was the most important day of her life: the day she auditioned for her school production of West Side Story. A senior in high school and obsessed with musical theatre, Kritzer wanted the role of Maria. And, she didn't get it.
