SOMEWHAT DISAPPOINTING

I was very excited to go see this show with my daughter, but I'm afraid it seemed more like a high school production acting-wise. It was very loud as one other reviewer noted, and it was hard to understand the words of several of the songs because the music was either too loud, or maybe they were having issues with the mics. That being said, the sets were very clever and the standout performances were from the actors who portrayed Karen and Janice. The theater was very nice and the attendants helping with seating were friendly and welcoming.

UNEVEN

I'm actually glad to read other reviewer's complaints about the sound, I thought it was just me. I saw this show in Boston a few years ago and this production is definitely not as strong. The actress who plays Regina is miscast, couldn't understand a thing she sang or spoke and her vocals were just not strong enough for the role. Maybe opening night nerves? The actresses playing Janice and Cady did a great job, and Damian's diction was spot on. Even with the sound issues, I could hear and understand almost everything. Pacing seemed to be an issue, with dialog being run through at lightning speed with no pauses for laughs. As for the orchestra, they did a good job. I was wondering about the booming (like startling) sound at the end of several songs - was that an electric bass guitar that was turned up to 11? Very jarring. The sound in the second half of the show was a bit better, hopefully the team will continue to make adjustments to improve the sound.

LOUD AND SHRILL

Although the premise is great, and enjoyed the movie, I found the singing very disappointing in the stage presentation. Esp Regina and Cady. The second half was better, and sets were nicely done, but music loud for the theatre. Felt bad for the little girl in front of me. A bit too much for her age. Is there a PG warning? Maybe she didn't understand the lyrics anyway.

LOUD AND KADY LOOK UP

The music was too loud and made it hard to hear the lyrics and at times made you cover your ears to muffle it. We were in the balcony (dress circle) and all we saw was the top of Cary’s head she never looked up during the performance to include the people up top. Maybe they are use to smaller theatres. Karen character was very good. The play was fun however but could be easily improved.

COULD BE BETTER

Great sets, flow and songs. Unfortunately the sound was shrill and it was hard to hear the singers. Regina and Cady had ok voices but not great. Also, it was hard to understand what Regina was singing as the words blended in with each other.

AGREE WITH DISAPPOINTING, POOR SOUND, BELOW AVERAGE SINGING AND MISCAST

We saw the production at the Pantages in Los Angeles 1/5/2023. I though it was just me. Other people agree. Casting was bad. Regina's voice just not up to par for this type of production. I could barely understand her words. Terrible. Too bad. A couple stand out performers but all in all a glorified high school production.

ENTERTAINING, BUT WOULD NOT WATCH AGAIN

Mean Girls: 7/10 - I was entertained and laughed a lot. Very campy vibes. But, I probably would not watch again. Pros - Entertaining and lots of jokes - Loved that they kept all the classic cult lines from the film - The millions of costume changes were impressive - Damien was my favorite Cons - Music not very memorable or catchy - I didnt like Regina's voice. It was my first time seeing a full digital set like that. It's impressive and graphics were good. But, I'm not at Broadway to watch TV...

What we thought

FUN Hysterical brilliant

I LOVED every minute of this production!

Tina Fey's acclaimed film Mean Girls has been a huge hit on Broadway in this new HYSTERICAL musical adaptation! The story compares life in high school with that of animals trying to survive in the wild.
