Tina Fey has some very fetch news: The “Mean Girls” musical she co-wrote is set for a Broadway run.
The writer-slash-actress made her “very big, very exciting” announcement in a video released Wednesday, hyping the new development. With official dates set, fans can start planning to watch the Plastics take the stage at the August Wilson Theatre. Previews will begin March 12, and then the show will officially open on April 8. Unfortunately, that date does not fall on a Wednesday, but you can still wear pink.
Fans who can’t wait till the “Mean Girls” musical hits Broadway can catch an earlier run in Washington, D.C., beginning Oct. 31. The show will tell the same story as the 2004 movie. This time, we’ll also get music from Fey’s composer husband, Jeff Richard, and lyrics written by Nell Benjamin (“Legally Blonde”). Casey Nicholaw (“The Book of Mormon”) directs.
Watch Fey’s announcement below, and get excited. This is going to be grool.
Tickets for “Mean Girls” on Broadway go on sale on — when else? — Oct. 3.
