12 of Broadway's Other Mean Girls

Well, The Plastics officially began their reign of terror on Broadway this week. But Regina, Gretchen and Karen are just the latest in a long line of theater Mean Girls.  Here is a dirty dozen of the meanest girls from the 30 longest-running Broadway shows (current rank as of 4/8/18 in parentheses):







Prima Donna, indeed!
Carlotta - The Phantom of the Opera (1) - This diva makes life Hell for the Paris Opera company. No wonder the Phantom takes such delight in messing with her!

Bebe and Ann - Real Class
Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly - Chicago (2) - These two are the 7 Deadly Sins wrapped up all in one. Somehow, you can't help rooting for these murderesses anyway...

She's no Lovely Lady...
Madame Thenardier - Les Miserables (5) - What a piece of work this one is... abusive mother, abusive wife, comic relief...

Original Sheila Kelly Bishop
Shiela Bryant - A Chorus Line (6) - Mouthy, rude, disrespectful, broken...

There are 2 Mean Girls in this picture...
Galinda Upland - Wicked (7) - Before she changed her name and became a force for good, bubble girl was the school bully... Regina George must have seen this show.

It's lonely on Broadway when you are a mean girl
Dorothy Brock - 42nd Street (14) - Another diva with a mean streak. Has anyone deserved a cast more?

Original Rizzo Adrienne Barbeau
Are there worse things she could do?
Betty Rizzo - Grease (15) - Even in the 50's there were girls you just avoided in the halls of high school.

Can you hairspray mouths shut?
Amber and Velma Van Tussle - Hairspray (22) - Another high school meanie - and a racist to boot! Of course, the apple doesn't fall too far from the bigot-tree... Here's hoping they both get "Cooties."

She's so bad she comes with a warning!
Lucy the Slut - Avenue Q (24) - Who can resist this buxom felt witch of a woman? Even mean girls can make you feel special...

Is she about to paddle that little orphan?
Miss Hannigan - Annie (27) - "Little Girls" cringe at the thought of this drunken monster

Coming soon: 12 of Broadway's Mean Boys!
