Mean Girls set sights on West End transfer in spring 2021
Mean Girls producers have announced they are ‘in final discussions’ for a West End transfer of the stage musical adaptation.
With a book by Tina Fey and music and lyrics by Jeff Richmond and Neil Benjamin respectively, the musical is based on Fey’s movie which starred Lindsay Lohan as a high schooler who falls in with the popular girls as she starts her new high school.
Produced on stage by Lorne Michaels, Stuart Thompson, Sonia Friedman, and Paramount Pictures, it has been announced that Casey Nicholaw’s production is set for a West End run in late spring of 2021, with dates, a venue, casting and ticket information to be announced.
Producers have also announced that the stage musical production is to be adapted for the silver screen, with Paramount Pictures set to adapt the musical back into a film.
Writer Fey said: “I’m very excited to bring Mean Girls back to the big screen. It's been incredibly gratifying to see how much the movie and the musical have meant to audiences. I've spent sixteen years with these characters now. They are my Marvel Universe and I love them dearly.”
Mean Girls will run in London in spring 2021.
