  • It’s the home of Mean Girls. The theater was very nice. Seats were wide and comfortable. I think I was there before, maybe it was to see, Mama Mia.  more »

  • Mean Girls is better than it has any right to be. I love Tina Fey and like the movie, but didn't think it would translate as well as it did. The musical is better than the movie. The theatre is lovely... seats are spacious, staff (bar, souvenir, coat check, ushers) were all gracious and friendly. Wonderful evening!
  • Saw Mean Girls at the August Wilson theater. The theater was beautiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly in helping us find our seats. We sat in the mezzanine and our view was OK, a little bit to the side made some of the near side of the stage harder to see. The show was amazing and very funny featuring many talented actors, singers, and dancers.
