About Mean Girls
The 2004 hit movie, featuring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, continues to hold a special place in the hearts of teenagers even after 15 years. The film is as popular as the queen bee, Regina George, at North Shore High, but the stage adaptation needed some modern updates. This musical adaptation retains the same characters and story that we all know and love, but with contemporary twists that make it more relevant to today’s trends.
Back in the early 90s, teens were known to be mean, but now, smartphones and social media are an integral part of teenage life. This means that the stage adaptation will seamlessly blend with the social media era and appeal to the younger generation.
The Mean Girls Musical is based on Tina Fey’s screenplay for the Mean Girls 2004 film, which, in turn, drew inspiration from Rosalind Wiseman’s 2002 book, Queen Bees and Wannabes. The musical made its debut at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., in October 2017 and later opened on Broadway at the August Wilson Theatre in April 2018. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Broadway production concluded on March 11, 2020. Additionally, there’s a film adaptation of the musical currently in the works, set to be released in theatres on January 12, 2024.
Mean Girls musical, now on its second North American tour, will open at the Savoy Theatre London in June. It has a book by Tina Fey (who co-wrote the screenplay for the 2004 teen comedy), is composed by Jeff Richmond, has lyrics by Nell Benjamin and is directed by Casey Nicholaw (also the choreographer). Casting for the musical, in which home-educated Cady Heron struggles to fit in with the intimidating clique of “Plastics” at her new high school, is yet to be announced.
After playing at the National Theatre in Washington DC in 2017, Mean Girls musical opened on Broadway in 2018 at the August Wilson Theatre. It received 12 nominations at the Tony Awards, making it the joint most-nominated show that year, but none resulted in a win. In a three-star review for the Guardian, Alexis Soloski wrote that the songs were “catchy enough” and the staging “sufficiently fluid” but concluded: “No offence, OK? Mean Girls musical is basic.” A film of the US stage production is to be released next year.
News of the London production was announced on 3 October which is considered the unofficial Mean Girls day due to a line in the film where Cady (played by Lindsay Lohan) tells her crush, Aaron, what the date is.Producers Lorne Michaels and Sonia Friedman called Mean Girls “a timeless comedy that for decades has connected with generations of audiences across the globe”.
