Tina Fey confirmed that a Broadway Musical inspired by the 2004 pop classic “Mean Girls” is in the works. The original cast, including Tina Fey, will not be recalled to reclaim their roles. Fey hopes to cast some “interesting people no one has seen before.”
Fey is collaborating with her husband, and composer Jeff Richmond as well as the lyricist Nell Benjamin. The musical is planning to be completed by the Mean Girls 15th Anniversary in 2019 and they are currently working out act placement and climatic songs.
Songs over key phrases like “Fetch” and “October 3rd” will definitely be included in the show as well as spotlight songs for supporting characters like Damian, Gretchen, and Regina George.
