As the closure of theatres on Broadway continue, the risk of more shows not making a return to the stage once productions open once again.

After presenting over 800 performances in the August Wilson Theatre, producers have decided to close the musical “Mean Girls”.

However, once performances and touring will be allowed to resume, the national touring production of “Mean Girls” will go on.

The musical, which was based on the 2014 film by the same name, has a film adaptation of the musical in the works.

“Mean Girls” follows in the wake of the musical “Frozen” which had previously announced in May that it would not reopen once Broadway was allowed to resume.

When the Covid-10 pandemic caused a closure of Broadway on March 12, 16 shows that had been scheduled to premiere never made it to the stage.  While some of the shows have moved their opening dates to 2021, others like “Hangman” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” have scrapped production plans.
