Mean Girls Broadway Review: Did The Musical Make Fetch Happen? + Discount Code!

by Nellie

This post is made possible by support from Mean Girls on Broadway. All opinions are my own.

There are a few movies that I will watch EVERY SINGLE TIME it’s on cable tv. My husband knows me so well that he can browse the millions of channels in our package then give me a “choice” of which movie to watch (he’s really good like that). One of those movies is Mean Girls.

I still laugh hysterically and I am genuinely entertained every single time I watch. When I was offered the opportunity to go see Mean Girls Broadway live musical I jumped on it SO FAST. It wasn’t even a question. Of COURSE I wanted to see it. I made arrangements, took one of my besties and boom just like that I was having a cool moms night out!

Even though I live in NYC I am ashamed to say that I don’t frequent broadway plays nearly as much as you would think. I often have friends come in from out of town and ask me what they should see—my answer?? Shrug emoji. 

With all that’s been the crazy of back to school I was happy for the break. My husband made arrangements to come home early and just like that I made my way to midtown for the show. 

On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink: Mean Girls Broadway Review 

Because the day included a ton of work, school pick ups and drop offs, a haircut and more—I had exactly 10 minutes to get ready and get out of the house. I picked this pink dress that I had never worn before. I felt sexy in it, so I said why not. I paired it with a leopard belt and shoes and boom! I was so ready to go!

**𝐎𝐧 𝗪𝐞𝐝𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐝𝐚𝐲’𝐬 𝗪𝐞 𝗪𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐏𝐢𝐧𝐤**⁣ ⁣ Last night I got a very rare moms night out and I went to see Mean Girls on Broadway 🎭 ⁣ ⁣ I was terrified honestly because Mean Girls is such a classic—I watch it *every* time it’s on TV and I didn’t want it to be ruined! 😩⁣ ⁣ The musical was fantastic. I laughed till my belly hurt and was super impressed with how they took Mean Girls to the next level with heartfelt songs and incredible visuals. They even updated the movie to bring in some fun social media elements that made it feel so 𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘩!⁣ ⁣ How many times have you seen Mean Girls? Are we still trying to make fetch happen?? @meangirlsbway #meangirlsbway ad

The August Wilson theater was a sea of pink. Signage, and event wall to take photos! I immediately felt at home. 

Mean Girls Broadway Merchandise

I wanted all the things!! Especially the burn book. All of the items were so cute!

Mean Girls Cast

For our show we saw Grey Henson play Damian, Olivia Kaufmann play Janis, Erika Henningsen play Cady, Renee Rapp play Regina George, Krystina Alabado play Gretchen and my favorite character Karen was played by Kate Rockwell. 

The show was incredible. I wasn’t expecting to laugh so much. I honestly expected it to be watered down musically version of my favorite movie. I was pleasantly blown away by every single scene. The visual effects were incredible too. Let me tell you guys, broadway has come a REALLY long way since my mom was taking me to shows when I was 5 years old!!

The songs were so awesome because they just expanded on the pivotal moments of the film. Even though I knew exactly what was coming next, I was super intrigued to see it translated to the stage. Spoiler Alert: it was fantastic

Somehow they take the old movie and make it new again! Songs you’ve never heard, a new but familiar set and a super talented cast that will make you forget Lindsay Lohan and the rest of the original movie cast immediately! 

Whether you are local or coming to visit, PLEASE make Mean Girls on Broadway a priority!! It’s perfect for girls night but if you want to take your spouse that’s okay too!

I just knew it was gonna be fabulous!!!!! And I always wanted a Burn Book of my own lol. I’m a big fan of the Mean Girls movie, too. So I might have to try and plan a trip to see it on Broadway. I’m glad you enjoyed it, love. Us mamas deserve to have a ladies night on the calendar as often as possible. And I think it’s dope that you’re looking out for moms with the Sittercity discount, too.
