from Mean Girls
MEAN GIRLS is now a ferociously funny new musical from director CASEY NICHOLAW (Aladdin, The Book of Mormon), JEFF RICHMOND ("30 Rock," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"), lyricist NELL BENJAMIN (Legally Blonde) and book writer TINA FEY ("30 Rock," Bossypants).
Cady Heron may have grown up on an Afrian savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Caddy devises a plan to end Regina's reign, she learns the hard way that you can't cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
Produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson and Paramount Pictures, MEAN GIRLS gets to the hilarious heart of what it means to be a true friend, a worthy nemesis, and above all, a human being.

"Mean Girls show is Incredible"

We took our 13 year daughter and there were a couple of bad words, however they were needed for the show at a few times. The show is as funny as the movie and I can argue the musical is much more funny than the movie. The cast can all sing better than many of the best selling singers that you hear on the radio currently. The entire cast can dance and act better than most on Broadway. The theater is very inviting and the crew were as kind and generous as most New Yorkers are. See the show

"The worst musical I've ever seen"

We were certainly unpleasantly surprised at how bad this show was. We'd picked it as it looked light and funny. It was absolutely unentertaining. Poor acting - we didn't connect with any of the characters. The main girls were not played well. The singing was poor. The storyline was boring. It is not even funny. Of all the shows we've ever seen on Broadway (and off) this has got to be the worst. I'd say there was no entertainment value. Save your $.

"Awful! I’d rather watch paint dry than see this again!"

Do not waste your time and money! I cannot believe anyone would give this a good review, it actually pains me to give it one star. The choreography is bad, the music is horrible, the set is pitiful. I loved the movie, it was hilarious, but they took all the funny parts of the movie out and instead replaced it with really bad music. Stay home and watch paint dry, it will be much more interesting than this play.

"Great show for teens"

I decided to take a chance and wait to buy my tickets in NYC. The advanced purchase of 3 orchestra seats totaled $800. We went to the TXT booth in Time Square an hour and a half before the 2pm show the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. I was able to get 3 tickets for $300! 10 row center orchestra. Perfect seats. These seats would have sold for the 800. The show was great, my teen daughter loved it. It had a lot of scenes from the movie and lines my daughter knew. I watched her laughing and having a great time. Definitely go if you have a teen, perfect show and wait to get your tickets. The booth told me they only sell orchestra or front mezzanine seats, no bad seats. Worth the money to have your kid experience broadway shows.
