Update, as of Jan. 4, 2024: The Mean Girls Experience Los Angeles opening has been postponed to Feb. 23. The New York opening will follow in the spring on a date to be announced.

Two interactive “Mean Girls” experiences will open in Los Angeles and New York City. Presented by Bucket Listers, the Mean Girls Experience will open in L.A. on Jan. 12, 2024, and in New York on Jan. 19. This follows the Jan. 12 release of the previously announced Paramount Pictures’ film adaptation of the 2018 Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical “Mean Girls.”

The Mean Girls Experience includes a fast-casual restaurant, offering “Mean Girls”-themed meals, drinks and desserts developed by “Master Chef” semi-finalist Becky Brown. The experience will also offer recreations of specific scenes and quotes from the film, happy hour at the bar and merchandise for sale. Set and costume pieces from the motion picture will be on display as well. 

“With the new film quickly approaching, there was no better time to honor this beloved classic and bring the Plastics’ world to life,” Bucket Listers president of experiences, Derek Berry, in a statement. “Every day here will be October 3.”

The new “Mean Girls” movie features music by Jeff Richmond and lyrics by Nell Benjamin, who wrote the Tony Award-nominated score, with a script by Tina Fey, who wrote the Tony-nominated book for the Broadway production. “Mean Girls” follows Cady Heron as she navigates the social hierarchy of her new high school, specifically Regina George’s exclusive clique called the Plastics.

The cast of the “Mean Girls” film includes Reneé Rapp as Regina George, a role she played on Broadway, Angourie Rice as Cady Heron, Bebe Wood as Gretchen Wieners, Avantika as Karen Smith, Christopher Briney as Aaron Samuels, Auli’i Cravalho as Janis Sarkisian and Tony nominee Jaquel Spivey as Damian Hubbard.

“Mean Girls” opened on Broadway at the August Wilson Theatre on April 8, 2018, and was nominated for 12 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
