Guys, this is so fetch: A Mean Girls musical is officially coming our way. During a New York Times panel series on Wednesday night our role-model Tina Fey confirmed that her beloved 2004 high school comedy will be adapted into a musical. “My husband, Jeff Richmond, and I [and lyricist] Nell Benjamin have been working on it,” she announced. Cue the fangirl screaming.
I’m delighted by the possibilities, and I’m not the only one making giddy predictions: The ladies at Vogue are hoping for “a big dance number choreographed to the song On Wednesdays We Wear Pink… A group of moms in Juicy Couture tracksuits singing a triumphant Cool Moms anthem.”
For those of you still worried this is too good to be true, never fear. This is actually the second time this week that Fey has confirmed that she’s working on a Mean Girls musical adaptation. During an interview on Howard Stern’s show on Tuesday, the radio host asked Fey why she never did a sequel to the film. “I don’t know why I didn’t just try to do Mean Girls 2,” she said. “Everyone does it.” That’s our Tina Fey, speaking some serious #Truth. Later, when Stern asked her flat-out whether or not the rumors of a Mean Girls musical were true, Fey replied, “Yes! You would go see that, right?”
We all would. Seriously—where can I buy tickets? Is it too soon to camp out in front of a Broadway theater?
