Random Thoughts About Pop Culture On A Monday…

Hello again, and welcome back to my weekly column series on my blog where I talk about all things in pop culture!

Today I will be talking about: The Closing Of Mean Girls On Broadway 

It was recently announced that the Broadway musical Mean Girls would not be returning when Broadway reopens.  This announcement came as somewhat of a surprise to me.  The show performed on TV a few times last year, (The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the NBC Broadway fundraiser special) and even though a few performances on TV didn’t mean this show would for sure be returning it did seem hopeful that it would.

I saw Mean Girls on Broadway a few months after the show opened.  As far as movie to stage adaptations, the musical was very well done.  Basically, if you like the movie you will most likely like the show.  The performances were amazing, the score is great and full of memorable songs, and all in all it is just a great show.  And Tony Award voters also thought highly of the musical as the show went on to receive 12 Tony Award nominations in 2018.  The most nominations for any show that year.

Mean Girls is not the first show to announce that it won’t be returning when Broadway reopens.  Last Spring, the musical Frozen was one of the first Broadway shows to announce that it would be closing for good.  And before Broadway shut down there was hope that the musical Beetlejuice would transfer to another theater after being kicked out of the Winter Garden Theater to make room for the revival of The Music Man.  But it was announced shortly after the shut down that the show played its final performance in March.  

Broadway is supposed to return at the end of May 2021 as of now.  Will any more shows announce they won’t be returning?  I hope no more shows will close, but who knows.  Mean Girls and Frozen may have suddenly closed on Broadway, but thanks to these shows having a cast recording the shows can still live on in some way.  A cast recording will never be as good as seeing a show live on stage, but it’s something.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s column for all things in pop culture!

Thanks so much for reading!

Hello, everyone out there in the land of blogs! My name is Jodi Fisher. A hopefully interesting yet quiet gal who wishes she could afford to live in the Big Apple. Some of you out there may be wondering why I decided to start a blog. There are so many blogs out there, that I didn’t think it was worth it for something nobody might even read. Although, with this new year I decided why not? So here I finally am with my own blog. So what is my blog all about? Well, as I previously have mentioned I am a fan of all things entertainment. Television, theater, and books are my very favorites out of pop culture. There is a chance if you were to ask me about a random television show or stage play, I will probably know if it’s worth viewing. I am also someone who loves nostalgia and remembering the better times from my past. I usually like to incorporate my love of entertainment and nostalgia together, when I wrote my blog posts. Along with my fondness of entertainment, I am someone, who tries to notice the simple things in life. So in ending this little tidbit about who I am, my goal in starting this blog is to just simply be me and write about things that I find interesting and entertaining.
