This post is made possible by support from Mean Girls on Broadway. All opinions are my own.
My sister has been my forever Broadway buddy for years now. Whenever I get the opportunity to see a new show on Broadway, she is always the first person I call. We usually make a night out of it too, with a fun dinner beforehand. This past week, we took the night to go see Mean Girls – The Musical at the August Wilson Theatre. Having seen the movie at least 100 times, we knew this play was going to be funny, we were not prepared for how much we’d laugh.
The Musical takes the sensibilities of the classic movie, the comedic wit of Tina Fey, and the genius of Lorne Michaels, mixes it up into a cocktail of hilarity, and then gets you drunk on comedy. It is soooo good.
The play is pretty true to form with the movie. Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban 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 Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
Between the writing and music, my sister and I were captivated from the beginning of the show all the way to the end. That’s really saying something. If you’ve ever been to a play of any kind, whether dramatic, comedic, or musical, you know that there can be lulls. None of that was apparent with Mean Girls – The Musical. This show was a riot from start to finish. The pacing was perfect, the comedy was witty and sharp, and the acting and singing were superb.
If you’re in the New York City area, I highly encourage you to head over to the August Wilson Theatre and take in Mean Girls – The Musical. If you’re not in the New York Metropolitan Area or close to it, don’t worry. Mean Girls – The Musical is launching a national tour this fall. I hope you’ll be able to find a showing somewhere close to you because it is one of the best musical comedies you’ll ever see.
