Mean Girls Tickets

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!

Ashley Park had quite the 2017-2018 season in New York City - a season that most young actors could only dream of! The cherry on the cake, of course, is her Tony Award nomination for her current role as Gretchen Wieners in the Broadway premiere of Mean Girls at the August Wilson Theatre, but she also garnered great critical acclaim for her starring role as MwE in Ars Nova's off-Broadway production of KPOP last fall.

Taylor Louderman is a current Tony Award nominee in the category of "Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical"... and Queen Bee of Broadway to boot! Starring in the coveted role of Regina George in the hit Broadway musical Mean Girls at the August Wilson Theatre, her career has been catapulted to new heights... but, whatever, she's getting cheese fries! (OK - I promise no more Mean Girls references).

Interview with Mean Girls scribe Tina Fey
May 10, 2018

Tina Fey, simply put, is one of America's most treasured comedians. She is also one of the entertainment industry's most talented writers and a two-time Golden Globe-winning actress to boot. Her list of accolades and credits on both the small and silver screen are extensive, but shows such as "30 Rock," "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," and, of course, "Saturday Night Live" have made her into a household name.

Our Mean Girls Review

No one is more surprised than I! Mean Girls—a big, noisy musical (not my thing), based on a hit teen movie (not my thing since…well, never), awash in stereotypes like the dumb girl, the hot boy, the powerful high-school clique, and the outsider desperate to belong—turns out to be one of those feel-good nights on Broadway when you unabashedly jump to your feet applauding because you’ve had such...
