From Screen To Stage: We'll Be Getting a 'Mean Girls' Musical!

posted on

Get your pink shirts ready because the 2004 teen flick Mean Girls is making its way to the stage, set to premiere at the National Theatre in Washington D.C. on October 31 before it is expected to hit Broadway in 2018!

The musical will be directed by Tony winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon) and will be featuring a book written by Tina Ffey (who also wrote the screenplay and starred as Mrs. Norbury in the original film), music by Fey’s husband Jeff Richmond (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and lyrics by Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde).

In case you've been living under a rock and still haven't seen Mean Girls, it tells the story of Cady Heron who has just moved to Illinois after living with her zoologist parents in Africa. Needing to find her spot in her high school's social hierarchy, she meets The Plastics, led by Regina George. While she slowly starts to become one of of the popular clique, she also tries to make up a plan on how to bring down the Queen Bee. 

Here are some of the cast of the musical who will bring life to Cady, The Plastics, and the rest of the gang:
