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 took my 2 teenage nieces to the show and they loved it. It helps if you have first seen the movie so you know the background. The girls loved the music and the dancing.

My friend and I are traveling with our daughters ages 12 and 14 and we all loved this show!! It was very entertaining with a great cast. We didn't want it to end! We were in orchestra row J center and the seats were excellent. The theatre is not very large so most of the seats are good. We waited after and were lucky to meet our 2 favorite characters - Damian and Gretchen!
