STAYED WITH THE STORY LINE

They story line resembled the movie and captured the highlights! The first half was good, second was decent. The real disappointment was Regina George voice! Terrible. caty voice could have been better as well. I did like the other girls and Janice’s

SOOOOOO SHRILL IT WAS UNBEARABLE

Painful audio with Regina's character singing. We saw the show Tuesday eve, Jan 24 so maybe it was the b-team running audio but I could not believe it, I thought my head and/or the theater was going to explode. Yell-singing is fine but this was too loud and overpowering, like jet planes are landing in my ear holes. It was not a good experience and I think even if the sound was not oppressive it would have been way too long.

SHRILL AND TOO LOUD

We have season tickets to BroadwaySF so we have seen a decent number of musicals. Overall the production was entertaining .... BUT for some reason the total audio volume was too high. It actually hurt to listen when a song built to a crescendo. What made it worse was that some of the singers ... notably Janis and Regina ... had shrill voices to begin with, so cranking up the volume with them was cringe worthy.

AGREE WITH OTHERS

Well, I definitely had a first at this show. It was the first time that I have ever left during intermission. Unfortunately, I agree with some of the other reviewers. The leads were very nasally singers and the actors raced through their lines and the music was super loud and drowned out the singing. My husband and I could not understand anything they were saying and missed all of the jokes. We were not the only ones leaving at intermission and I asked one gentleman why he left and he said the same thing that it was just so loud it was not enjoyable. I thought maybe it was where our seats were on the right orchestra, section A, but he was in the balcony and had the same problem.

MEAN GIRLS

Sadly disappointed by this musical. It did not appear to be the quality I've come to expect from Mirvish productions. Voices were drowned out, scenery very amateurish even for a high school setting, and I like many others couldn't wait for intermission to leave. I've been to many great shows, even good shows, but this one was lacking in every aspect.

DERIVATIVE

Love Tina Fey. Love the movie Mean Girls. The Musical? I left the theatre after the first act. Main reason: Cady and Regina characters sing sharp. Cannot do it. Also. The songs. The songs diminish the promise. W. T. F.

DISAPPOINTING

As a huge musical fan and a huge Mean Girls fan I was really looking forward to this but the play does not have the fun and heart that you are expecting if you know the movie. Regina and Cady do not have good singing voices - to the point that it is uncomfortable. Janis and Damien (understudy) were good and Karen (understudy) was the best part of the show. Felt like a high school production with an inflated budget. Very disappointed.

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.
