When Mean Girls debuted in 2004, it became somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. The story was based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabes, which detailed the damaging effects of high school cliques and bullying. The screenplay was written by Tina Fey, who drew from her high school experience which inspired concepts in the film. The film was a commercial success, and in 2018, inspired the Broadway musical adaptation. Mean Girls debuts at Segerstrom Center for the Arts on March 7th, 2023, and runs through March 19th, 2023.
Mean Girls on Broadway
Mean Girls debuted on Broadway in 2018 and features a book by Tina Fey, which was based on her screenplay for the original film. Like the film, the story focuses on a teen girl navigating her way through the social hierarchy of a modern American high school after being homeschooled by her parents while they were conducting research in Africa. As the new girl at school, Cady Heron is challenged to rise to popularity by taking on The Plastics, a trio of frenemies led by Regina George. When Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns that “you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.”
Featuring high energy, and clever humor with inside jokes reminiscent of the film, Mean Girls will take you back to the hit film. With original songs, side-splitting dialogue, and a phenomenal cast, Mean Girls fuses humor and nostalgia into a feel-good musical you’ll love.
