With producers Lorne Michaels and Stuart Thompson, the National Theatre in Washington D.C. will host the world premiere prior to Broadway of the new musical Mean Girls, adapted from the hit Paramount Pictures film. The new musical will feature a book by nine-time Emmy Award winner Tina Fey, based on her screenplay for the film, music by three-time Emmy Award winner Jeff Richmond (“30 Rock,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde). Tony Award winner Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon, Something Rotten!) will direct and choreograph.

After years of living with her zoologist parents in Africa, Cady Heron moves to Illinois and must find where she fits in the social hierarchy. A sweet, naive newbie, Cady quickly attracts the attention of The Plastics, a trio of popular frenemies led by the vicious and calculating Regina George. When Cady devises a plan to end Regina’s reign, she learns that you can’t cross a Queen Bee without getting stung.

Full of razor-sharp wit and remarkable insight, Mean Girls takes a look at friendships — and human nature — through a ferociously funny lens.

More details will be announced soon.
