The musical stage adaptation of the hit high-school flick “Mean Girls” will be coming to the National Theater in Washington, D.C., from Oct. 31 through Dec. 3 before a planned run on Broadway, according to pastemagazine.com.
Though the cast is still to be announced, the show boasts an impressive creative team:Broadway.com reports that Tina Fey, the screenwriter of the original film, and creator of “30 Rock” is the project’s writer.
Jeff Richmond, Fey’s husband, composed the score alongside Nell Benjamin, composer of “Legally Blonde”. Casey Nicholaw of “The Book of Mormon” will direct the play, and Lorne Michaels, who produced the original “Mean Girls” (and “SNL”) is jumping on as a producer alongside Stuart Thompson, a six-time Tony winner.
