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.

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.

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

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.

This show has potential but like others we left at intermission. The decibel level was just overwhelming. There were zero Sound Guidelines. An usher said there had been complaints yet deterred the sound management of this crew. Brian Ronan should be made to sit in the Dress Circle for an hour.. A huge disservice to both the kids on that stage working so hard to deliver plus the inner ears of a captive audience. Very disappointing afternoon.

EAR PIERCING & UNINTELLIGIBLE
You won't understand what anyone is singing - and I grew up watching Mean Girls, so I was at least tuned to what was happening. Oddly, the two lead singers playing Cady and Regina are the hardest to listen to. Cady is shrill and changes her voice entirely in her upper register, suddenly becoming 10 years old. Regina is either mumbling or blowing out your eardrums; there's no in between. It was hard to listen to honestly, often painful. Unfortunately, even if the singers were better, the material just isn't there; the music doesn't have any distinct or memorable melodies or lyrics, and I left the night not remembering a single song.
ON A POSITIVE NOTE: Karen was a standout - hilarious. Janis and Damien blended singing and articulation well. And the staging was inventive and entertaining. Mean Girls is alright time if your expectations are subterranean. There are a couple laughs, but ultimately doesn't succeed at being a good musical or sufficiently nostalgic.
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.
