“Mean Girls” to Open On Broadway In April 2018

“Mean Girls,” the Broadway musical co-written by Tina Fey and produced by “Saturday Night Live” impresario Lorne Michaels, has locked in a Broadway run that opens in April at the August Wilson Theater, according to variety.com.

Show is based on Mark Waters’ 2004 teen comedy, which Fey wrote as well. Although it has been updated for 2018,“Mean Girls” will follow the plot of the movie (which provided memorable roles for actresses including Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams and Lizzy Caplan). The storyline follows the teenage Cady, who returns to the U.S. after time abroad and finds herself forced to navigate the cutthroat social order of American high school.

The production has already announced a cast that includes Kerry Butler in Fey’s role and Erika Henningsen as Cady. Taylor Louderman and Barrett Wilbert Weed will also star.
