5.0 star rating Anonymous from No


It was so amazing! I went with my mom and sister who have seen a bootleg and seen the movie. We were so exited and our expectations were met! The actors were amazing and I don’t know what everyone is saying about Regina she was amazing. Cady was a little high but still amazing. People are also complains about it being to inappropriate and not suit for kids, but , yeah ITS NOT MADE FOR THE YOUNGER AUDIENCE. Check the age rating! Don’t bring your kids to a musical you have never seen or heard. It’s not their fault you won’t check an age rating 🙄. Honestly an amazing show and totally recommend!

4.0 star rating K from Toronto, Ontario


Liked all the other lead actors. The ensemble good also. Set design colourful and music had good energy. The characters of Cady and Janis ( she was outstanding) Karen and Damian ( both outstanding) and Araron and Regina’s mother and actress who played the school teacher were all great. The male lead Damian was superb . Enjoyed the show though and definitely worth seeing.

3.0 star rating Tina from Stafford, Virginia


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.

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.

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.
