“I’m thrilled that Mean Girls will become available to school, community and regional theaters, because those are my favorite kinds of theaters! I can’t wait to see diverse ensembles around the country make the show their own,” said Tina Fey.
“We are very excited for Mean Girls to become part of the canon of shows that help nurture the next generation of musical theater fans and performers across the globe,” stated Lorne Michaels.
“What a genuine thrill for MTI to represent Mean Girls and be able to bring this hilarious and meaningful musical to theatre groups around the world,” stated Drew Cohen, MTI’s President and CEO. “We have already received countless inquiries from producers around the world at all levels-regional theaters, community theaters, universities, high schools-for the simple reason that the show delivers, both artistically and as box office gold. While remaining true to the beloved film and its now-classic characters, Tina Fey, Jeff Richmond and Nell Benjamin have brilliantly adapted the material for the stage and for today’s audiences. Importantly, their work also benefits the entire cast, who have so many opportunities to shine as individuals and as part of a robust ensemble.”Source: Broadway World
