Tina Fey Will Bless Us With a ‘Mean Girls’ Musical
Mean Girls will be hitting the stage — and not just the one at the Winter Talent Show.
Tina Fey, who wrote the 2004 flick starring Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams, revealed that steps have already been taken to ensure that the musical version of the high school comedy will come to fruition.
“My husband [composer] Jeff Richmond and I, [along with lyricist] Nell Benjamin, have been working on it,” she said during a New York Times panel series at Manhattan’s Florence Gould Hall on Wednesday (Mar. 2, 2016). When reporter Melena Ryzik pressed further and asked if a musical was actually being made, Fey confirmed that our dreams had come true and responded, “Yes, yes.”
However, she also quickly noted that opening day could still be “years away.”
Of course, this would not be the first time Fey teamed up with Richmond for a musical endeavor. Richmond was responsible for creating the theme songs to 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, as well as other in-show tunes from sit-coms created by his wife. (“Werewolf Bar Mitzvah,” anyone?)
Whatever the case may be, a Mean Girls musical is officially happening. So get in loser, we’re going singing.
