The news was announced via an official Mean Girls Twitter account. The show will start it's run in Washington D.C. in Fall 2017, and it is going to be pretty grool.
Whispers of a potential Broadway musical version of the 2004 hit comedy have been floating around for years, but it finally seems as though it is definitely happening. So far, Nell Benjamin is slated to write the lyrics, Tina Fey is writing the book and Fey's husband, Jeff Richmond (who wrote the ultra-catchy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt theme song), is working on music.
The theatre that is putting up the musical and the rest of the creative team have yet to be announced.
Get in, loser. We're going to see a musical.
