Mean Girls on Broadway: A New Broadway Sensation

In case you haven’t heard, Mean Girls has been turned into a Broadway musical! Written by Tina Fey and composed by her husband Jeff Richmond, Mean Girls is about Cady Heron (Erika Henningsen), a transfer student from Africa, trying to find her place at North Shore High School.  Along the way, she meets Janis Sarkisian (Barrett Wilbert Weed) and Damian Hubbard (Grey Henson), who show her the ins and outs of the school, including The Plastics. Regina George (Taylor Louderman), Gretchen Weiners (Ashley Park) and Karen Smith (Kate Rockwell) make up The Plastics, and give Cady Heron a high school experience she’ll never forget.

You can see Mean Girls on Broadway at the August Wilson Theatre in New York’s Theater District. Tickets are pricey and must be purchased weeks in advance. Tickets can be found here:
