The Mean Girls musical on Broadway tells the story of Cady Heron, who has recently moved to a suburban town in Illinois, coming from Africa, where she had grown up and spent all her childhood.

She’s becoming part of the vicious clique called “The Plastics”, led by Regina George – a pretty, popular and powerful girl. How is Cady going to deal with the good and, above all, the bad that may come with popularity? Get ready for teen drama at its highest level!
