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.

Nothing like the movie at all! You’d figure since the movie was such a hit they’d leave it be. The younger generation has ruined everything. 100% do not recommend, don’t waste your money folks!

Being a fan of the movie, I was anxious to see how they would present the show on Broadway. Let me tell you-- it was amazing! Such a fun, entertaining performance with a great overall message and really different but cool set! The August Wilson Theatre was beautiful and clean. Cast was great, signing autographs after the show! Highly recommend!

What a super fun show. Starting with the super cool intivate set made of up LED electronic boards which set the scene be it school lunch room, outside the school or a rocking party. Super cool. The actress and actors were all amazing. I could not begin to single out just one. Also super talented and so such amazing voices. Also my girls were super excited to "stage door" the cast after the show and many of the cast came out and visited with the fans, signed book, records or what ever and posed for pictures. Super memorable!

Super talented. They perform, sing, act and all at the same time is super fun to see. Different than Lion King and The Wicked, this show have more grouping musicals than the others. It follows exactly the movie script, but all musicals .Completely love it!
