Tina Fey, one of my favorite comedic actresses, wrote the very funny teen comedy film called Mean Girls in 2004. She is actively working on a Broadway musical based on the story she wrote. She is writing the book with Elle Kemper (Office, Bridesmaids) and who stars in Ms. Fey's current television series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Ms. Fey's husband, Jeff Richmond, who currently writes the music for the current television series, will be writing the music for this upcoming musical along with lyricist Nell Benjamin.
Mean Girls tells the story about Cady Heron who just came back from living in Africa with her scientist parents and she is having issues trying to adjust to everyday "high school life" after years of being homeschooled. Cady is now in the difficult position of figuring out which "social clique" to join and her decision to join "The Plastics" proves challenging for everyone to say the least.
Ms. Fey is planning on taking the summer of 2016 off from other projects so she can work on Mean Girls the musical along with Ms. Kemper, who is off as well on maternity leave.
Just about everything Tina Fey does is incredibly creative and popular on television and in the movies. I'm personally rooting for her to create another exciting Broadway musical that will be enjoyed by possibly millions of people for years to come. When recently interviewed about Mean Girls The Musical, Ms. Fey can be quoted as saying that her show will come to Broadway in 2027, when Hamilton closes". Although that may seem oddly funny, it's quite possible that Hamilton will still be running strong in 2027 as well.
I hope you enjoyed today's blog post on what is happening and what could potentially be happening on Broadway in the near future.
Cheers and good luck to Tina Fey and the entire creative team of the upcoming Mean Girls The Musical on Broadway.
