Mean Girls has now closed at the August Wilson Theatre. For more information, read here.
Get ready Mean Girls fans because Tina Fey's musical adaptation of the hit 2004 movie has arrived! Featuring music by Fey's husband and 3-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond (composer of "30 Rock" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt") and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin, Mean Girls has invaded the Great White Way!
Unlike some screen-to-stage adaptations, Mean Girls has embraced the opportunity to become its own theatrical entity. Rather than safely transposing the screenplay onto a stage and shoe-horning in a few songs wherever possible, the creative team has put together a show that goes above and beyond its hugely popular source material. Tina Fey has updated the book with sprinklings of post-2004, topical references that draw the biggest laughs of the night, whilst director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw has ensured that every opportunistic moment is brimming with movement and dance. Whether its striking tableaus of the three "Plastics," Damian's welcomed tap number or even a full, lunch tray-brandishing musical number, Nicholaw has the cast on its toes throughout. In addition, Finn Ross & Adam Young's scrapbook-esque video projections coupled with Scott Pask's sleek scenic design enable quick and seamless scene changes and delve the audience into the treacherous world of a teenage girl's mind.
Mean Girls is truly a crowd pleaser with a talented ensemble that cover multiple teenage and adult roles and is proving a huge hit with audiences, regardless of whether you are still a teenager who directly identifies or if you're already an adult who reminisces and shudders involuntarily. Watch your backs, beeyatches, and buy your tickets today!
