If there was one movie to accurately sum up our days in high school, Mean Girls would be the one. While NYC high schools are set up quite different than those in more rural areas, the characters are always the same. I would say with certainty we’ve all encountered a Regina George at some point in our high school years, and we’ve all felt like Cady Heron – trying to fit in with the crowd and somehow losing ourselves along the way.
My oldest daughter is 10, and at the perfect age to start introducing her to Broadway and the amazing productions that take place near Times Square. After checking out Mean Girls for myself, I know it’s going on the list of shows I want to take my girls to.
The music in Mean Girls on Broadway is unique, and each main character has their own solo that tells a little about themselves, their personality, and what’s going on in their heads. There’s a lot of comedy and adult humor, keeping the show interesting for 2 1/2 hours. You can feel the energy of the actors on stage and really connect with the cast.
After speaking with the producers before the show, I learned that Tina Fey wrote the musical and you can really see her personal touches on the production. The set for the show is not like any other stage I’ve seen on Broadway, and you can tell that a lot of work and effort went into making you feel like you were really in a high school setting.
If you ask me, Mean Girls on Broadway is definitely a must-see! Whether it’s for a special Ladies Night Out, or you want to bring your own kids to learn about the effects of bullying and the importance of just being themselves.
