"...You’d like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical. The oh-so-not-surprising answer is, yes: the scary-talented Fey can most certainly write a musical, and a funny one at that. Based on her 2004 film comedy of the same title, “Mean Girls” the musical is a jolt of super-energized adolescent hyper-viciousness, with a snazzy video screenscape thrown in, along with a big chorus of Red Bull-powered hip-hopping high school dancers.

"...The pre-Broadway world premiere of Mean Girls officially opened at the National Theatre last night. Judging from the excitement in the theater (care to wait in line to buy a “So Fetch” hat, anyone?), this is a show with a built-in fan base. One imagines that the performers could have simply stood on stage reading lines from the movie script and the audience would have howled with approval. But Mean Girls the musical does so much more. With excellent performances from some of Broadway’s hottest up-and-comers, great dance numbers, and flawless set design, this show delivers the goods and leaves audiences deeply satisfied. Oh, and Tina Fey’s contribution? Predictably hilarious."

"...Mean Girls currently boasts vibrant staging and production values; it has characters to love and hate; Fey’s solid and funny book; and an engaging set of music and lyrics. And the Washington audiences are clearly taken with the idea of the show having its premiere here at the National.x
