'Mean Girls' musical to open in the West End in 2024
The stage musical adaptation of the hit 2004 movie, which premiered on Broadway in 2018, will make its U.K. debut at the Savoy Theatre in June 2024.
Get in, loser, we're going to London! The Mean Girls musical is set to make its London premiere at the Savoy Theatre in June 2024, with exact performance dates to be announced.
Following a hit Broadway run from 2018-2020, Mean Girls now comes to the U.K. for the first time. The show is based on the 2004 movie about Cady Heron, a homeschooled teenager attending high school for the first time. She gets in with the Plastics — a popular clique consisting of airheaded Karen, gossipy Gretchen, and queen bee Regina — but drama ensues when she tries to take Regina down.
Tina Fey, who wrote the film's screenplay, also wrote the book for the stage show. Original music is by lyricist Nell Benjamin (Legally Blonde) and composer Jeff Richmond. Director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw (The Book of Mormon) rounds out the lead creative team.
Casting for Mean Girls in London has yet to be announced. The movie starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Fey. The Broadway production originally starred Erika Henningsen, Taylor Louderman, Ashley Park, and Kate Rockwell.
