STAY HOME!

I had to leave BEFORE intermission. The cast was yelling the songs, not singing. The story (?) was disjointed. And it was soooo loud. I went with my daughter who loved the movie but had to leave the play as well. Beyond disappointing. More like traumatizing!! Stay home!

USELESS SOUND MIX

The musician doing the sound mix prioritized the instrumentation over the lyrics, doing such a disservice for the hard working cast. So much of the story is in the lyrics, it’s annoyingly frustrating when they’re unintelligible throughout. I’m sure the sound engineer would think it’s borderline, but it should NEVER be close to borderline. Unlike him, we the audience don’t already know the lyrics and aren’t close enough to lip read. Glad I saw the movie, or I would have had no idea what was going on.

SEEING IS NOT BELIEVING!

As an avid theatre goer I had great anticipation to see MIrvish’s production of Mean Girls. Despite sitting front row the entire production was fraught with sound issues leaving the lines and vocals incomprehensible and inaudible throughout both acts. Miscasts and mishaps left us all feeling this production was more like a high school production that simply fell short, rather than the excellence I have come to admire and love over decades. Left disappointed and let down. Frankly, UN- FETCHED.

VERY DISAPPOINTING!

My husband and I are long time season subscribers and this is the first time ever we left a play at intermission. We could not understand 90% of the the dialogue or song lyrics. We thought it might be because we are little older (60's) however we asked 2 young teens that were seated behind us and they said they couldn't understand anything either.

MEAN GIRLS

The 2018 production in New York was absolutely amazing excited to see again in Los Angeles. I thought wrong very disappointed In the casting and production. Some of the characters were better then the others but honestly all in all it was like a high school performance. Dancing was great! Some characters sounded muffled I barely could hear and laughed a few times. Many of the voices did not explode like they should in a professional theater atmosphere and the boyfriend had 0 emotion. I would not recommend it if you love the theater .

BE CAUTIOUS AND AVOID

Would highly DISCOURAGE seeing this show and especially bringing children under 18 years old to this show. The movie is PG-13 but this was more than just explicit language, sexual content, and partying, the script and performance was degrading towards women, people of color, and the LGBTQIA+ community. It was dehumanizing. It was NOT woke. This script was written in the 90s and is completely out of touch with today's world and society. I cringed more than I laughed. It was embarrassing that this show was shown in San Francisco of all places. There was no substance and it completely lacked inspiration. Unfortunately, the dry humor from the move script just did not transfer at all to an expressive performance. The songs were completely unmemorable. The performers were each talented in their own way but I hope they can go on to perform in more uplifting musicals that can provide change and healing to this world. I am a musical theater lover and attending this musical took away some joy of musical theater for me... it just goes to show do some research before you see a show! I saw this musical so that you don't have to.

DISAPPOINTED

I'll put positives first: Karen and Janice's vocal performances were great. The blocking and ensemble were professional and clean. It's a well written show if you like pop musicals! I'll put the one, overwhelming negative first: the audio engineering was awful. Incredibly loud, overwhelming, and (I hate to say it) SHRILL during the high notes. Part of that is on the two female leads (Regina, Cady) and part of it is definitely on the sound mixers. I've seen Mean Girls on Broadway and it certainly did not have this issue - the leads were allowed to belt and it was not an issue, everyone was able to hear it without covering their ears. Overall a big disappointment. I hope they fix it in future performances, I'm a bit appalled they haven't already.

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.
