On Wednesdays…Will YOU Wear Pink? Join the Plastics of Mean Girls when wearing the clique’s favorite color might mean scoring a special, limited time only offer for discounted tickets. The new musical produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman, and Paramount Pictures, and based on the hit film, begins previews on Monday, March 12. Opening night is Sunday, April 8 at New York’s August Wilson Theatre
Here’s how to make sure you’re sitting at the right table:
Pink Wednesdays Rush Tickets:
On Wednesdays beginning next Wednesday, March 14, a limited number of $42.50 general rush tickets will be available only to customers wearing pink at the August Wilson Theatre and can be purchased with cash or credit card when the box office opens at 10:00am, Monday-Saturday. In-order to be eligible, you must be wearing a visible item of pink clothing! Tickets are limited to two per customer, and are non-transferable and subject to availability; seat locations will vary, and some may be partial view. The rush policy is exclusive to Wednesday performances for a limited time only.
Pre-Show Lottery (In-Person):
As previously announced, a limited number of $42.50 same-day tickets will be made available prior to each performance of Mean Girls via a pre-show, in-person lottery. For Wednesday performances – yes, we’re totally going there – Pre-Show Lottery participants who wear a visible item of pink clothing will receive a pink lotto slip and the first pink slip drawn will receive a free pair of tickets to that performance.
Entries for the Pre-Show Lottery will be accepted beginning two and a half hours before curtain time, and winners will be selected two hours prior to each performance. Lottery winners must be present at the time of the drawing with valid identification to purchase tickets, using cash or credit card. Pre-Show Lottery tickets are limited to one entry per person and two tickets per winner. Seat locations and number of tickets awarded by the Pre-Show Lottery are subject to availability.
“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 naïve 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 is based on the 2004 film of the same name. The musical is crafted by nine-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, based on her screenplay for the film, with music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond, and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin. Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (Aladdin, Book of Mormon) directs and choreographs.
