The Mean Girls musical is officially heading to the Great White Way next year! The idea for a musical version of the now-classic film has been in the works for the past five years, with original screenwriter Tina Fey writing the book and her husband, Jeff Richmond working on the music with help from lyricist Nell Benjamin, who worked on the musical adaptation of Legally Blonde.
Fey says the Plastics are getting at 2017 makeover, think more smartphones and less party lines. Fey also is promising to expand on the original movie, saying that the new cast members add their own dimensions to the material.
Mean Girls makes it world premiere in Washington D.C. this October before moving to Broadway in March.
