One night, one show...which one? Oct 15

Hadestown actually has a very large teen following on social media - there are plenty of “stan” accounts and fangirls/boys who love the show. I wouldn’t worry about a younger person not enjoying it.
Mean Girls would likely be more up a typical 16 year old girl's alley, however, Beetlejuice is the superior show in terms of quality (although neither are phenomenal). Renee Rapp is giving a stellar performance in Mean Girls, so there's that. She's someone to watch out for in the future - I predict big things ahead for her.
If you're definitively set on seeing one of these two, Beetlejuice would be my pick, although I'd suggest that Moulin Rouge, Hadestown, or
The under-construction Hard Rock Hotel, next door to New Orleans' Saenger Theatre where WICKED was scheduled to run through Oct 20th, has collapsed, forcing WICKED to cut this leg of the tour short. One person was killed in the collapse and others were injured.
Here's to the safety of those who have to load out WICKED from the Saenger under such hazardous conditions.

I think it’s a lovely show. I saw the tour as well as a local production and enjoyed it very much both times. Yes, it has flaws, especially in the book, but it’s a fun score and a heartwarming story. I’m not even a fan of bluegrass music - at all. It typically has the same effect on me as nails on a chalkboard. Something about this score works for me, however.

Bad show. It made it as long as it did because of name recognition. Lippa, Brickman, and Elice did not understand their source materials well enough to write a good show. They completely butchered the characters without any sense of how they were originally intended to be in the comics/TV show/movies&n

Regardless of whether you like the show or not, it’s hard to dispute the fact that everything from that season lived under Hamilton’s shadow. In a different season it would have likely done much better.

If you love all different types of shows, why does it matter what you see? You seem like you’re bound to enjoy it regardless. Besides, even in the unlikely that you don’t like the show, it’s not like you took a huge loss on the ticket since you have a massive budget.

Blue Skies by Irving Berlin was written for Betsy in the 20’s and used in White Christmas later. It may have been used other times as well that I’m not aware of.
