No, it’s not just George Takei and Ian McKellen trading barbs for an hour and a half. Mean Gays, a parody of Mean Girls – filled with 1990s and 2000s pop-culture references – bills itself as “too gay to function.” The play, which earned Patron’s Pick at the 2019 Orlando Fringe Festival, is back for an encore performance at the Parliament House with new cast members. Guests can purchase a VIP experience for $25, which includes reserved seating in the first four rows and a meet-and-greet after the performance. Get in, losers. We're going shopping!

7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, July 4-6 | Footlight Theater at the Parliament House, 410 N. Orange Blossom Trail | meangaysencore.eventbrite.com | $15-$25
