What is Mean Girls about?
For Cady Heron, the lions of the African savanna have nothing on the wild and vicious ways of suburban Illinois. Her new home is a world away from where she grew up.
To survive and thrive, this naïve newbie will have to take on The Plastics; a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. Cady needs to rise to the top of the popularity pecking order at North Shore High, so she devises a plan to end Regina’s reign. However, she soon learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
The original 2004 movie starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams was a hugely popular hit. This musical adaptation brings the same adored characters and story into this decade, with social media and smartphones adding a whole new level of mean!
Produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman, and Paramount Pictures, Mean Girls gets to the hilarious heart of what it means to be a true friend, a worthy nemesis, and above all, a human being.
We don’t know if or when this production is coming to the West End but sign up to be the first to hear!
