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):
Carlotta - The Phantom of the Opera (1)
|Prima Donna, indeed!|
- This diva makes life Hell for the Paris Opera company. No wonder the Phantom takes such delight in messing with her!
Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly - Chicago (2)
|Bebe and Ann - Real Class|
- These two are the 7 Deadly Sins wrapped up all in one. Somehow, you can't help rooting for these murderesses anyway...
Madame Thenardier - Les Miserables (5)
|She's no Lovely Lady...|
- What a piece of work this one is... abusive mother, abusive wife, comic relief...
Shiela Bryant - A Chorus Line (6)
|Original Sheila Kelly Bishop|
- Mouthy, rude, disrespectful, broken...
Galinda Upland - Wicked (7)
|There are 2 Mean Girls in this picture...|
- Before she changed her name and became a force for good, bubble girl was the school bully... Regina George must have seen this show.
Dorothy Brock - 42nd Street (14)
|It's lonely on Broadway when you are a mean girl|
- Another diva with a mean streak. Has anyone deserved a cast more?
Betty Rizzo - Grease (15)
|Original Rizzo Adrienne Barbeau|
Are there worse things she could do?
- Even in the 50's there were girls you just avoided in the halls of high school.
Amber and Velma Van Tussle - Hairspray (22)
|Can you hairspray mouths shut?|
- 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."
Lucy the Slut - Avenue Q (24)
|She's so bad she comes with a warning!|
- Who can resist this buxom felt witch of a woman? Even mean girls can make you feel special...
Miss Hannigan - Annie (27)
|Is she about to paddle that little orphan?|
- "Little Girls" cringe at the thought of this drunken monster
