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.

Booked this prior to coming to NY. Think there may have been other shows I would have picked before this one. Nonetheless it was very good and singing and performances were outstanding. Not sure I would recommend to people.

"It was OK."
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 11, 2020 NEW
I’m a fan of the movie and Tina Fey, but this was just OK for me. No memorable songs and I wouldn’t want to see it again. The voices and the dancing were good. The site said it’s for 10 and up and I think they tend to overestimate appropriate ages for shows, but not for this one. I brought a 10 year old and there were definitely some cringes, but overall the message is to be yourself and not be a jerk, so I figured that trumped. I will say, she enjoyed it. The audience heavily skews female / girls night out. Got orchestra seats from the tkts booth for 98$/each.

We had four seats front row center, great legroom. Most broadway plays or musicals the front row is not good, but this one is great, the stage is lower and the view was amazing.
