Mean Girls the Musical to Open in DC in Late October

It was revealed Wednesday that the Mean Girls musical will be set in present day because of how much things have changed since the film’s release in 2004. According to The New York Times, “The  adaptation is set in the present time. That means the Plastics have  Snapchat and Instagram in their arsenal.” The new production is  scheduled to open in Washington D.C. in late October before moving to  Broadway, with previews beginning in March. 

Tina Fey wrote the book and  her husband Jeff Richmond is doing the music, while Nell Benjamin of Legally Blonde  will provide lyrics. The cast includes Erika Henningsen as Cady Heron,  Taylor Louderman as Regina George, Ashley Park as Gretchen Wieners and  Kate Rockwell as Karen Smith.
