Tony Award® winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs. The play originally opened on Broadway in April 2018 to rave reviews at the August Wilson Theatre, following its world premiere at the National Theatre in Washington, DC, in the fall of 2017.
“Audiences will enjoy seeing pop culture classic Mean Girls in a whole new light as a musical,” said Billy Hoffmann, Hancock Whitney senior vice president. “At Hancock Whitney, we proudly support the arts and are thrilled to bring this show to the Gulf South as part of the Hancock Whitney Broadway in New Orleans series.”
Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But 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.
New York Magazine calls Mean Girls “HILARIOUS! A smart, splashy new musical that delivers with immense energy, a wicked sense of humor, and joyful inside-jokery.” Chicago Tribune said, “Tina Fey writes FUNNIER, SMARTER, SHARPER satire than anyone else in the business.” People Magazine calls the show “FRESH, FUN AND INFECTIOUS – Jeff Richmond and Nell Benjamin’s songs keep the laughs coming!” The New York Daily News said Mean Girls “TICKLES THE EARS, EYES AND FUNNY BONE – the direction by Casey Nicholaw packs style, invention, and red bull-force energy.” And Entertainment Weekly calls it “A MARVEL: DAZZLING & HILARIOUS!” See you there?
