Mean Girls musical to hit the stage

2017-03-22 15:33

New York — Tina Fey's stage adaptation of Mean Girls will make its world premiere at The National Theatre in Washington, D.C.

The new musical is based on the 2004 film about a naive girl who falls in love with her new high school's coolest, prettiest, most treacherous triumvirate of girls, called The Plastics. The show will run from 31 October - 3 December.

It will feature a story by Fey, based on her screenplay for the film, music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond (30 Rock, 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and lyrics by Tony Award-nominee Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde). Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon) will direct and choreograph.

The film starred Lindsay Lohan, but there was no word on who would star onstage.
