London's West End can expect nothing less than a theatrical sensation with director and choreographer Casey Nicholaw (Disney's AladdinThe Book of Mormon), composer Jeff Richmond (30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde)! The creative force behind the original film, Tina Fey, was crucial in its stage adaptation. She ensured that the musical preserved the sassy spirit of the movie while incorporating fresh and relative perspectives.

What is Mean Girls?

Mean Girls (2004) was a cultural phenomenon that could not be ignored. Fans even celebrate October 3rd as Mean Girls Day!

Starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, Mean Girls tells the story of Cady Heron as she navigates popularity, American high school drama and adolescence after being home-schooled in Africa for most of her life. Cady learns crucial lessons about friendship, identity, and the dangers of conformity when she infiltrates the popular yet cutthroat Plastics led by Regina George (played by Rachel McAdams).

While the precise opening date in 2024 is unknown, the excitement is palpable. So start planning to secure your tickets, and stay tuned for more updates.
