In a promo that dropped Friday, the writer of the hit 2004 movie about high school cliques celebrated updating the coming-of-age comedy for 2017 by showing that she, too, had entered the 2010s. “I have two very big, very exciting announcements. One, I finally got GPS in my car. And two, we’re bringing Mean Girls to Broadway,” she said, before adding, “You probably don’t care as much about this first thing.”
The promo was released to announce that tickets are now available on the show’s website.
Fey has written the book for the show, which is directed and choreographed by Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Aladdin). Lorne Michaels and Stuart Thompson are producing, and Taylor Louderman, Ashley Park and Kate Rockwell star as Regina George, Gretchen Wieners and Karen Smith, respectively. Previews begin March 12 at the August Wilson Theatre, with the official opening night set for April 8.
