The award-winning hit new Broadway musical comedy Mean Girls, produced by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman, and Paramount Pictures, has broken the August Wilson Theatre box office record for the fifth time, grossing $1,595,340.30 over eight performances for the week ending July 29, 2018.
