Tickets go on sale this week for the world premiere of the Broadway-bound new musical Mean Girls, with a book by nine-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, based on her screenplay for the Paramount Pictures film; music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond (“30 Rock,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”); and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde).
Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Something Rotten!) directs and choreographs.
The limited engagement at the National Theatre, Washington D.C. runs Tuesday 31 October to Sunday 3 December, 2017.
After years of living with her zoologist parents in Africa, Cady Heron moves to Illinois and must find where she fits in the social hierarchy.
A sweet, naive newbie, Cady quickly attracts the attention of The Plastics, a trio of popular frenemies led by the vicious and calculating Regina George. When Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.
Full of razor-sharp wit and remarkable insight, MEAN GIRLS takes a look at friendships—and human nature—through a ferociously funny lens.
Mean Girls is produced by Lorne Michaels and Stuart Thompson.
Casting for the D.C. engagement, additional creative team members, and other information will be announced at a later date.
