You want to know more about the show? Well, get in, losers… Mean Girls is coming to London!
The hit Broadway musical from an award-winning creative team including writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon), is due to open at the Savoy Theatre next year, with previews commencing from June 2024.
Meet The Plastics –Regina, Gretchen and Karen. They rule North Shore High and will burn anyone who gets in their way. Home-schooled Cady Heron may think she knows a thing or two about survival of the fittest, thanks to her zoologist parents, but high school is a whole new level of savage.
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. Expect iconic characters, razor-sharp wit, and killer songs. Grab your friends and your cool mom, this is going to be fetch!
Mean Girls had its world premiere in 2017 at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. and opened on Broadway in April 2018 at the August Wilson Theatre to rave reviews, where it played to packed houses.
The show then went on a successful US tour in 2019 and is currently on its second US tour. The upcoming Mean Girls musical film adaptation from Paramount Pictures will debut in UK cinemas in early 2024.
Originally released in 2004, Mean Girls has had a profound impact on pop-culture for nearly 20 years. Tina Fey’s hilarious portrayal of high school life struck a chord with audiences across the globe and the film’s whip-smart satire, iconic catchphrases, and unforgettable characters made it a phenomenon that remains a cultural touchstone to this day.
Tina Fey said: ”We’re so excited to bring Mean Girls to London, where everyone already knows what Regina means.”
