The Kravis Center for the Performing Arts’ 15th season of tours for 2023-2024 includes titles with 23 Tony Awards, six West Palm Beach premieres plus the acclaimed revival/rewriting of To Kill a Mockingbird.
Amazingly, this revival still stands as fresh as it did 25 years ago.
The hit musical from book writer Tina Fey (30 Rock), composer Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and director Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon). Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. Soon, this naïve newbie falls prey to 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.
Based on Tim Burton’s film, this musical tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes. With an irreverent book, an astonishing set, and a score that some say is out of this netherworld.
