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.

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.

FETCH ISN'T GONNA HAPPEN

There was a lot of potential for this to be good, unfortunately, rushed lines and miscasts really ruined my experience of this show. The good - standout performances from the supporting casts, namely Karen (Morgan Ashley Bryant) and Damian (Eric Hoffman). They were able to salvage the show with their good vocals and comedic timing. The bad - Regina (Nadina Hassan) had an awful performance. We couldn't understand 70% of what she was saying, and her high notes were so pitchy that many audience members (including myself) had to cover our ears. I really had high hopes for this, but save your time and money - this isn't worth it.

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.
