I was just watching this movie over the holidays, thirteen years after the films original release date Tina Fey has confirmed that a Mean Girls Musical is coming to the National Theater in Washington this fall.

The production’s creative team includes Fey, who wrote the Mean Girls screenplay; her husband Jeff Richmond and lyricist Nell Benjamin, who worked on the stage adaptation of Legally Blonde. The team also includes Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels, who produced the original movie and will do the same for the show, alongside Broadway producer Stuart Thompson and Casey Nicholas (The Book of Mormon).
Fey spoke previously at the Tribeca Film Festival about wanting the musical to closely mirror the movie that everyone loves, begging: “Do you take out things that are now outdated? Like three-way calling is not a thing.” THR reported the musical will most likely showcase in New York as well as D.C. if it proves a success.
