Description

from Mean Girls
YOU CAN'T SIT WITH THEM. BUT YOU CAN SIT IN THE AUDIENCE.
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.

I didn't know what to expect on this movie becoming a Broadway show but it was AMAZING! I loved everything about it. The songs were catchy and they adapted the majority of the movie. It was cool to see how they modernized the show as well with cell phones and social issues. Definitely recommend! Well done!

"Love, love spending time with . . . Mean Girls"

I have a tendency to lean toward tradition when it comes to musicals . . . such as Les Mis and Phantom of the Opera, though I've seen a wide variety over the years. Therefore, I'm as surprised as anyone that this musical now has taken the top spot . . . my favorite one, to date. Why? It's got what you would expect from a top musical . . . excellent singing, acting, choreography, an entertaining story, interesting set design, along with some good, deep belly laughs. But here is where it goes one step above . . . there are several pretty strong, thoughtful messages in it that have been updated further from the original movie to be more in sync with today, and they aren't pushed on the viewer in an obnoxious, preachy way. In fact, my Mother/Daughter trip to NYC turned into a parenting goldmine with this musical. I've been tackling topics such as the dark side of social media, body image, toxic friend groups for years with my kids. Had I known I could have just taken my daughter to the Mean Girls musical and really have these messages drive home, I would have done it five years ago, saved myself about 200 gray hairs, ten to fifteen disagreements with said daughter, and hours upon hours of stress. Seriously, though, it is really, really, really good. It also doesn't hurt that my friend scored a backstage tour given by Rick Younger who plays Principal Duvall. Yes, I can say that he is as funny in real life as he is in the musical. He is a part of the original Broadway cast and his talent amazes me. I am one of those people that will never read a book twice, see a movie more than once, unless it is beyond amazing. I would see Mean Girls again.

"Brilliant Birthday Present!"

Booked Mean Girls as we thought it would be 18th birthday appropriate, and knew that we wanted to see a broadway show while in New York. Both me and my mum (who may not have enjoyed or understood the show as much as I did) were blown away at the talent of the performers, and found the show hilarious and easy to follow after watching the film multiple times. Would certainly recommend to mother/daughter groups and teenagers as an incredibly funny and entertaining show, well worth the ticket price.

This was my first Broadway show and I was completely blown away by how wonderful this show was! I love the movie and was very excited to see how they adapted it to the stage. The cast was perfect, the sets and how they switched between them was incredible and they had great dialogue and songs that kept us laughing. I would highly recommend seeing this, you will be glad you did!

"It was so fetch"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 13, 2019 NEW
The show was very funny and managed to hold the heart of the film counterpart whilst bringing it into musical theatre. The plastics were cast perfectly, and the songs were clever funny and sometimes even catchy. The apex predator is one to go back and listen to. Felt right to have updated the story adding quotes about social media, iPhone's and so on. Staging is pretty basic but the choreography and story-line make up for it. Loved the drink selection at the bar included cocktails that were named after wonderful quotes such as 'Is butter a carb', or 'On Wednesdays we wear pink'.
