“Mean Girls” Coming to State Theatre New Jersey

WATCH OUT FOR THE PLASTICS: The hit Broadway musical comedy “Mean Girls” will be at State Theatre New Jersey on May 11 and 12.

State Theatre New Jersey presents Mean Girls, the new musical comedy adapted from the Paramount Pictures film, on Saturday, May 11 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 12 at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Tickets range from $40-$105.

Direct from Broadway, Mean Girls is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde), and director Casey Nicholas (The Book of Mormon).

Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naive newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. But when Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns the hard way that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

Mean Girls opened on Broadway in April 2018 to rave reviews at the August Wilson Theatre, following its world premiere at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C., in the fall of 2017.
