Musical (2018)

Musique: Jeff Richmond
Paroles: Neil Benjamin
Livret: Tina Fey
Production à la création:

Unlike some screen-to-stage adaptations, Mean Girls has embraced the opportunity to become its own theatrical entity. Rather than safely transposing the screenplay onto a stage and shoe-horning in a few songs wherever possible, the creative team has put together a show that goes above and beyond its hugely popular source material.

Mean Girls is truly a crowd pleaser with a talented ensemble that cover multiple teenage and adult roles and is proving a huge hit with audiences, regardless of whether you are still a teenager who directly identifies or if you're already an adult who reminisces and shudders involuntarily. Watch your backs, beeyatches, and buy your tickets today!

Presse : "Let me say up front that if I were asked to choose among the healthy lineup of girl-power musicals now exercising their lungs on Broadway, you would have to count me on Team Regina. That’s a reference to the alpha leader of the nasty title characters of Mean Girls, the likable but seriously over-padded new show." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"Tina Fey’s new Broadway musical Mean Girls delivers a fizzy blast that tickles the ears, eyes and funny bone." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"Mean Girls’s gospel of female self-actualization is borne out in the platform it provides for some of the most exciting young performers in musical theater. They bring a lot to the cafeteria table." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"Director-choreographer Nicholaw infuses the production with his customary playful energy, and his dance moves have an almost awkwardly explosive quality that seems organic to the teenage characters. Even the splashy ensemble numbers, two of which make memorable use of cafeteria trays, suggest a nervous burst of hormonally charged adolescence that makes Mean Girls sing." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Tina Fey’s catty book and Nell Benjamin’s saucy lyrics pump laughs into this smart, funny, musical-comedy version of the 2004 movie." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
