Gabourey Sidibe and Lovie Simone Will Join Cynthia Erivo & More in School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play Benefit Reading

Twenty-twenty has been a trip. Nothing surprises us anymore, but it hasn’t been all bad. It brought free grocery delivery, cocktails from your favorite restaurant delivered to your doorstep, and now MCC Theater’s School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play benefit reading via stream! The reading will feature Cynthia Erivo, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Ashleigh Murray, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Storm Reid, Lyric Ross, Gabourey Sidibe, and Lovie Simone. This amazing play by Jocelyn Bioh will be directed by Kamilah Forbes.

Once described by Essence as “the most important play off-Broadway”, School Girls will stream on Sunday, December 13th at 3 PM EST. Please, please, please don’t think you are going to wait until the last minute to purchase these tickets because you will have your feelings hurt. Ticket sales close at 1 PM the day of the show. $15 tickets are sold out but $30 and $50 tickets, which includes a talkback, are still available HERE.

Paulina, the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school, has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But the arrival of Ericka, a new student with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter—and Paulina’s hive-minded friends. This 2018 Lortel Award winner for BEST PLAY and NEW YORK TIMES CRITIC’S PICK explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.
