This tour visits the locations frequented by some of Chicago's most notorious gangsters along with many of the most haunted locations in Chicago
After debuting on Broadway in 2018, the musical version of Tina Fey's high school comedy Mean Girls is going to try to make "fetch" happen in Chicago. The James M. Nederlander Theatre will host the touring production of the stage adaptation for a five-week engagement from December 25, 2019 to January 26, 2020. Boasting a book by Fey, the Mean Girls musical follows home-schooled teenager Cady Heron as she begins attending a high school in the Chicago suburbs and contends with Regina George, the most popular (and meanest) girl in her class. Time Out New York theater critic Adam Feldman awarded the original Broadway production four stars, calling it "A canny crossbreed of Heathers and Hairspray... updated to reflect the new realities of smartphones and social media." Tickets for the Chicago production of Mean Girls will go on sale soon and, just like the touring production of Dear Evan Hansen, they're likely to sell out extremely quickly.
