Mean Girls  
August Wilson Theatre Mean Girls
 
Unlike some screen-to-stage adaptations, Mean Girls has embraced the opportunity to become its own theatrical entity. Rather than safely transposing the screenplay onto a stage and shoe-horning in a few songs wherever possible, the creative team has put together a show that goes above and beyond its hugely popular source material. Tina Fey has updated the book with sprinklings of post-2004, topical references that draw the biggest laughs of the night, whilst director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw has ensured that every opportunistic moment is brimming with movement and dance. Whether its striking tableaus of the three "Plastics," Damian's welcomed tap number or even a full, lunch tray-brandishing musical number, Nicholaw has the cast on its toes throughout. In addition, Finn Ross & Adam Young's scrapbook-esque video projections coupled with Scott Pask's sleek scenic design enable quick and seamless scene changes and delve the audience into the treacherous world of a teenage girl's mind.

A Musical About Star Wars  
St. Luke's Theatre A Musical About Star Wars
 
There's never been a musical about Star Wars - no, the infamous holiday special definitely doesn't count - but now all your Dagobah dreams are about to come true, as a pair of former Staten Island Blockbuster clerks bring both sides of the Force to the off-Broadway stage. Together Taylor, aka the "Millennial Falcon," and the slightly-older Scott, or "Gen-X Winger," have created an epic songfest that celebrates all the magic, mayhem and fandom fun of Star Wars. But faster than Han Solo can make the Kessel run, their costar - an actress and activist - suddenly lets loose with a galaxy-shaking admission, threatening the very existence of A Musical About Star Wars. Enjoy it, you will, at St. Luke's Theatre in New York.
   
My Fair Lady  
Lincoln Center My Fair Lady
 
Marking the first Broadway revival in 25 years, the brand new production is directed by Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher and is another shining example of Sher doing what Sher does best. Following his tremendous successes with South Pacific and The King and I, he has created yet another lavish and nostalgic representation of a timeless classic. With grand sets and elaborate costumes most directors would die for and rousing musical numbers galore, the audience is spoilt by an embarrassment of riches. Sher's interpretation of the ending of the piece may also surprise some attendees, but is actually more in line with the musical's original source material - George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Kudos to Lincoln Center Theater for once again proving itself as the frontrunner in staging Broadway musical revivals.
