“MEAN GIRLS” Are Coming to San Francisco

January 31 – February 26, 2022

Ready for some fun and laughter? You are in for a treat! Direct from Broadway, MEAN GIRLS is the hilarious hit musical from an award-winning creative team, including a book by nine-time Emmy Award®-winner Tina Fey, based on her screenplay for the film; music by three-time Emmy Award-winner Jeff Richmond; and lyrics by two-time Tony Award® nominee Nell Benjamin.

Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw directs and choreographs. Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to 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. Ouch! USA Today says, “We’ll let you in on a little secret, because we’re such good friends: “GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!”
