Heads Up, Hudson Valley: A ‘Mean Girls’ Musical is Coming To New York
Mean Girls is making a comeback, and this time, it's hitting the Broadway stage.
The massively popular 2004 comedy starring Lindsey Lohan and written by Tina Fey is being adapted into a Broadway musical. Previews for the show begin on March 12th, and opening day will be April 8th at the August Wilson Theater.
Much of the talent from the movie has been imported for the show, too. Tina Fey also wrote the musical's book, and the show is produced by Lorne Michaels, the original film's producer and creator of a little show called Saturday Night Live (it's some obscure late-night sketch comedy program, you've probably never heard of it). The show will have its first run at the National Theater in Washington from October 31st to December 3rd before making its move to Broadway.
This new version will also update the story to take place in the present day. I can imagine social media would have a pretty big effect on the way this story is told, so that could provide a new twist on the movie.
So hey, this is pretty cool! What do you think? Will this musical be able to make "fetch" finally happen?
