With music by Jeff Richmond, lyrics by Nell Benjamin, and a book by Tina Fey, Mean Girls is a marvelous musical. It is based on the same-titled 2004 Fey-written movie, which was itself based on Rosalind Wiseman’s 2002 book Queen Bees and Wannabes. The musical had its world premiere in October 2017. This was followed by its Broadway debut at the August Wilson Theatre in April 2018. The musical is directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw, and produced by Lorne Michaels and Stuart Thompson. Gregg Barnes acts as the costume designer; Scott Pask as the set designer; Finn Ross and Adam Young as the video designers; Kenneth Posner as the lighting designer; and Brian Ronan as the sound designer.
The original movie Mean Girls was an instant commercial success upon its release in 2004. It remains one of the most rewatched films, making a huge impact on pop culture. Critics had nothing but praises for the film, pegging it as a cult classic. It won several awards including three Teen Choice Awards and three MTV Movie Awards. It was also hailed as the eleventh-best performance of the 21st century by The New Yorker. “In a wasteland of dumb movies about teenagers, Mean Girls is a smart and funny one,” as described by the Chicago Sun-Times. Tina Fey took inspiration from the 2002 book Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman, which discusses female high school social cliques, bullying at school, and the negative effects it may have on teens. Fey also used her own Upper Darby High School experience as inspiration for several of the movie’s themes.

The story goes like this… Cady Heron, who originally hails from Kenya (and no, you can’t just ask why she’s white), is still the new girl at school. Under the nasty stilettos of Regina George, the Plastics continue to control the hallways. Cady infiltrates the clique at Janis and Damian’s urging. She then destroys Regina, rises to the position of queen bee, and let’s down everyone she loves. Sad, right? Well, this all happens before learning to appreciate every aspect of herself, even the fierce – and cute – mathlete. The 2018 musical features an updated book by Fey and smart and amusing lyrics by Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde). And the score by Jeff Richmond has some memorable numbers, including “What’s Wrong With Me,” “Apex Predator” and “It Roars.”
The world can’t get enough of Mean Girls, proven by the fact that it’s now on Broadway. I mean, how could you resist a show full of angsty, funny, and sometimes crazy teenagers? At some point, everyone can relate to this movie! High school is a stage in life that everyone will never forget – no matter which clique you were a part of. Like what Towleroad said, “Mean Girls has life-long insights for the freaks, geeks, queen bees, and wannabes in all of us.” The show is stunningly hilarious, and the new musical just makes the storyline even better. Come join the Plastics, and enjoy as Cady struggles figuring out what she really wants from life.
There’s nothing Entertainment Weekly didn’t love about Tina Fey’s Broadway debut. They wrote, “An ode to self-respect and the benefits of a STEM-based education, Broadway’s Mean Girls is a lively, frequently hilarious adaptation of Tina Fey’s 2004 high school comedy. Propelled by dazzling set design and several stand-out performances, the musical – written by Fey, with music by Jeff Richmond, and directed by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon) – gives fans everything they want while bringing the saga of Regina George and the Plastics into the social media age.”
