Broadway’s ‘Mean Girls’ Kicks Off a Diverse 2019-20 Season at Shea’s

Four shows now on Broadway and two that had runs last year are coming to Shea’s Buffalo Theatre for the 2019-20 season.

Buffalo will launch the touring production of “Mean Girls,” inspired by Tina Fey’s movie of the same name. It’s the fourth time a show has started its tour in Buffalo. The show opens the Broadway Series on Sept. 21.

“There’s wonderful diversity in the programming — contemporary, classic favorites, shows fresh from Broadway — that will challenge, excite and inspire,” said Michael Murphy, Shea’s president.

The lineup follows what has been a banner season for Shea’s. The theater reached 18,632 season subscriptions, shattering the previous mark, and featured “Hamilton,” the theater’s best three-week engagement ever.

With demand for tickets high, and a plethora of Broadway traveling shows available, Shea’s has expanded its subscription series from six to seven shows. Four shows were offered when the Broadway Series began.
